From time to time, YALSA teen blogger Katie and I will get together to have a heart-to-heart talk about issues affecting teen librarians from both a teen and librarian’s perspective. First up: what does intellectual freedom mean to the teens who use our library?

For more information about teens and what you can do to be an advocate of intellectual freedom, please visit the ALA’s Office of Intellectual Freedom or YALSA’s own Intellectual Freedom Resources.

4 Thoughts on “Katie & Joseph’s YALSA Vlog Ep. 1: You Can’t Spell Intellectual Freedom without “Teen”

  1. I so wanted to hear what this teens said, but either she is talking very quietly or she needs to stand closer to have camera pick her up. Joseph, I can hear you fine. I had the computer turned up full blast, too. This was a great idea.

  2. Lindsey, I could hear Katie when my volume was turned up a bit. She is quieter then Joseph but with raising the volume a bit she is audible. Maybe if you are still having trouble if you use headphones that could help. I find that sometimes that works for me.

    I used headphones and I could hear both just fine. Thanks, Joseph and Katie, for this wonderful surprise on a Saturday morning. My god, Katie, you really know your YA lit. 😀

  4. Joseph and Katie,

    You’re brilliant! Thanks for this vlog. I look forward to your next one.
