Links Round-Up: University Applications Fall, but Graphic Novels and Teen Events Are Awesome

2 Feb

Don’t forget, Saturday 4 February is National Libraries Day!

University applications set to show slump after tuition fee hike of about 9%. This does include overseas students. I’d be interested in seeing figure for UK students. This is the steepest fall in 30 years.

Read about a week in the life of a secondary school librarian on Big, Friendly Librarian.

Teen Librarian has compiled a list of great graphic novels about the Holocaust.

Photos from a completely amazing Harry Potter-themed party for teens (seems like this could also be used with children, or maybe even put together by teens for children!).

I love this visual list of ideas for a Teen Summer Read programme called “Own the Night” (her teen library Pinterest is also worth a look in). As far as I know there haven’t been any recent summer reading programmes for teens in the UK (anyone know differently? Give a shout in the comments!), but it’s one of my librarian dreams. I do know that Southend Library held one some years ago (through the Reading Agency, I believe) and it was quite a success. There’s certainly potential there.
