Librarians, please encourage your teens to be a part of an exciting initiative. Do your teens want a say in YALSA’s newest month long celebration? This year, Teen Read Week and Teen Tech Week will be dissolving to form a month-long celebration of teen programming and teen services in libraries across the country. This celebration will include related displays, passive activities, and programming that will fit public libraries, school libraries, and beyond. We will also being asking both teens and librarians for their feedback on the celebration, so be sure to keep an eye out for that.
To submit your celebration name, post on social media with your suggested idea and use #yalsaname, or fill out our Google form. The winner will receive prizes and recognition. You are able to submit ideas until 5/31. Once the submission date has passed, there will be a voting period for the top 10 entries. Please share the news!
