Whys and wherefores:
Beth Gallaway’s Power Point presentation “All Reading is Good Reading: Teen Summer Reading Programs“.
Here’s the PSA for “Metamorphosis @ Your Library” on YouTube.
Something to check out. I like this idea of a summer reading graphic novel. I haven’t spent enough time with this to completely figure it out, but take a look “Lost in Jamestown Graphic Novel.”
Teen program ideas from Rosemary Honnold.
Lots of ideas here: California Library Association workshops (check the videos).
Teen Summer Reading Programs (other than Metamorphosis):
Milpitas Teen Library Services (CA) “Read to Do Your Own Thing“; Schaumberg Township (IL) District Library, “Teenagers’ Guide to the Galaxy”
At the Young Adult Professional’s Page; YALSA’s Professional Development page on Programming.
“Library Latino Style” from CA
How to write a press release.
This is not about summer reading programs – just teen programs in general. What do you think of this?
