Reading through the YALSA blogWednesday, December 1, 2010 | 11:22 pm
I’m behind on my Google Reader, so I’ve just started to work through the posts on the YALSA blog regarding the YA Lit Symposium.
The YALSA blog is really a wealth of information, and I encourage anyone with an interest in teen services/teen literature to check it out. One of the many resources offered was a book list entitled “Celebrating Literature by and for Hispanic, Latina, Chicano Teens, A Select Bibliography.” Other interesting links included Malinda Lo’s series, Avoiding LGBTQ Stereotypes in YA Fiction, and a recap of a Pre-Conference Talk entitled, Body Positivity and Size Acceptance in Contemporary Young Adult Fiction.
I thought it was also interesting, one of the posts talked about adding your library to a social networking site like FourSquare where users can “check-in” online and earn points whenever they visit your library. I agree that it might be something that appeals to teens, but I’m not sure how many libraries would actually act on the idea.
Anyway, these are just some of the highlights! I encourage you to click on the YALSA blog link to the left and see for yourself!
