In about a week YALS subscribers and YALSA members will find the newest issue of YALS in their mailboxes. The theme of the issue is Connecting and Collecting and feature articles on:
- How the Weinberg Foundation is helping to re-invent Baltimore Public School libraries by providing funding to re-envision space, collections and staffing at elementary and middle school libraries.
- The amazing ways that library staff working with teens have used Best Buy funding to develop technology-based programming for and with teens.
- The future of public library collections for teens. Is it possible that we’ll interfile more of our collections in order to support more readers and provide more space to teens for hanging out, messing around, and geeking out?
- The future of school library collections for teens. As more and more collections become digital, what does that mean for access, discoverability, and what school library staff purchase in physical form?
- How personalized reading lists for teens – created by library staff – can improve teen library relationships and build interest in reading by teens.
- The legacy of Margaret A. Edwards and the future of the Margaret Edwards Trust.
- The winners of the YALSA 2014 awards and lists.
