Future Directions

1 Sep

I’m looking at where to take YA Library UK. That’s why I created this poll, which you should vote in immediately!

As of this moment, the topics with the most votes are…

1) YA booklists addressing specific topics such as books for/about GLBT teens, best teen non-fiction, and Greatest 50 YA Books, et cetera
2) Features on teen pop culture
3) Case studies of and guidelines for successful events, workshops and programs for teens
4) Case studies of programs or campaigns that have successfully recruited more young people to public libraries

These (or whatever the most popular topics are by the time the poll closes!) will become frequently recurring features of YA Library UK, appearing weekly, fortnightly, and monthly! Other topics will be touched on more sporadically (but don’t worry, I won’t neglect any of them entirely).

Don’t like the look of the popular topics? Cast a ballot in the poll. Love the direction all the votes are taking? Stack the odds by adding your vote!

    Devon Libraries have an online list of books that may be of interest to LGBT young people. It was created in response to requests by young people to have books and weblinks available online as many LGBT teens in Devon have the double whammy of being socially and geographically isolated.
    Click on the link at http://www.devon.gov.uk/urlibrary to take a look. Any suggestions for additional resources we could include would be welcome as it is still a work in progress.
