Tomorrow at 2pm CST and Thursday at 10am CST and 8pm CST, the Alliance Library System in East Peoria, IL and partners are hosting a book discussion of Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis in Whyville’s Greek Theatre. Whyville is a virtual world primarily for tweens and teens (their median age is 12 1/2) with many 13-16 year olds as members that is ‘learner-centered, hands-on, and inquiry-based’. Adults are able to sign up as well. For more information visit here (note the times in this YALSA post are the correct times for the discussion). Consider setting up a projector and computer to show people at your library what libraries are doing and can do in Whyville. Chances are, you’ll have a few teens and tweens share their own stories of being in Whyville.
