The YALSA Update: Symposium Housing, Teen Read Week PSAs & More

Symposium News: Early bird registration ends on Sept. 1, so make sure to register at the Young Adult Literature Symposium site to save up to 25 percent over advanced and onsite registration.’  Plus, we’ve got housing news! In addition to the Springhill Suites, we now have a housing block reserved at the Courtyard Nashville Downtown. To find out how to reserve your housing, or to look for roommates, check out the Housing page on the YALSA YA Lit Symposium Wiki.

Teen Read Week PSAs featuring Nancy Cartwright: Nancy Cartwright, voice of Bart Simpson, graciously produced three public service announcements for Teen Read Week this year. Download all three at the I Love Libraries Teen Read Week page — they’re perfect for playing during school announcements or you can give a copy to your local radio station.

Teen Read Week Registration: We’ve got just over two weeks until Teen Read Week registration closes! Be sure to visit the Teen Read Week website and register, if you haven’t already. The first 1,000 people to register between Sept. 1 and Sept. 12 will receive a FREE poster from The Secret Life of Bees. In addition, everyone who registers for Teen Read Week will receive a complimentary copy of TeenInk!

Last Day for Surveys: Tomorrow is the last day to take the YALSA Member Survey or the ALA Annual Feedback Survey. Tell us what you think at our Surveys page!

Coming Up in September: Bundled registration for Midwinter and Annual 2009 opens Sept. 2, advanced registration continues for the YA Lit Symposium, and committee volunteer forms are due by Sept. 30. Mark your calendars!

That’s it for this week’s update! To stay up to date on the latest from the YALSA Office, sign up to follow YALSA on Twitter or become a fan of YALSA on Facebook!
