Get Ready for Operation TBD 2010!

YALSA will again work with the Readergirlz and Guys Lit Wire in 2010 for another iteration of Operation Teen Book Drop! Operation TBD will take place on Support Teen Literature Day, April 15, 2010. Over the past two years, Operation TBD has put 20,000 books for teens into pediatric hospitals in the United States and Canada. This year, Operation TBD will coordinate donations to tribal libraries and schools by joining forces with If I Can Read, I Can Do Anything: A National Book Club for Native American Children, a project directed by former ALA president Loriene Roy.

Check out this video made by Readergirlz in honor of this year’s event to see how you can get involved! Want to learn more or see what schools and libraries are involved? Check out the Operation TBD website or contact us at yalsa@ala.org.
