The Club Formerly Known as Printz (Spring 2013)

In Darkness by Nick Lake coverThe spring issue of YALS is filled with articles on YALSA’s annual booklists and awards. But, of course, awards and lists are not a once-a-year kind of thing. Throughout the year library staff working with teens sponsor events related to books that appear on lists and that have won awards. Staff also work with young adults on projects where they – the teens – get to choose what should win the next award. One great example of that kind of program is covered on the YALSAblog and The Hub in a post by Sharon Grover titled The Club Formerly Known as Printz. Check it out to find out how teens can get so excited about reading books that they move from one program purpose to another.
