teens helping kids at the library?
Basically, my teen and tween advisory boards are looking to do something for younger kids at the library. Does anyone have any ideas or experience with programs like these? I was thinking…face-painting, maybe? I don’t want it to be anything like story time because I don’t want to step on the children’s librarian’s toes, but I’d love something that tied in with literacy.
I can’t even figure out good search terms to Google these sorts of things :(
Get a job where I got my start in librarianing. (That Fish Is Fish felt storyboard? That’s my handiwork.) And get to lecture library school students. And other cool stuff.
You guys, I forgot to tell you

These seem to be centered in the South, but hey, a girl can dream?
Lunch break. Goddamnit I love working here! Ugh you should see the books I came upon in Cutter today. I took pictures, but I’ll have to post them later. Libraries are so underrated it’s not even funny.
If I keep an open mind I feel like I can have amazing experiences here like the one I had yesterday (before the Awful Incident) and the one I’m having right now every day! The things I’m realizing, the ideas that are happening, the creative juices are boiling. Yes! Yes to libraries! Yes yes yes.
Thought I recognized that campus. (And of course Cutter really narrowed it down to, like, MHC and the Holyoke Public Library.) Huzzah, MHC, home of the Simmons GSLIS West program and also a great place for stroller strolls!
Reader’s Advisory Crowd-Sourcing
A school librarian friend is finalizing assigned summer reading and writes,
"I am looking for a nonfiction book about french or irish teenagers (because these are trips planned for next year). Any suggestions?"
Can you help us?
Okay I am so fucking pumped right now
At a library by my house, at the end of May they’re gonna have a TFiOS premiere party okay and we come in pajamas, watch Vlogbrother, sci-show, and crash course videos, have TFiOS and everything nerdfighter related trivia, IN A GIANT BLANKET FORT, AND THEY’RE GIVING AWAY 100 COPIES OF TFiOS
I AM SO FUCKING PUMPED
(Speaking of which @datfrenchiedoee thought you might wanna go because Ashley will probably be busy and stuff and yeah happy birthday and stuff)
I’m at a library that’s way too small for something on this scale, but I’ve spent the day planning our TFIOS party, and it’s not looking too shabby.
Advise me: Summer Reading Prizes for YAs
Last year I got a pretty good stash of ARCs, comic books, rock gym memberships, burrito gift cards and movie vouchers donated. I’ve got the funds to do a bit of shopping this year, though.
What’s your strategy? Or are you against incentivizing reading?
