On June 9 YALSA hosted an online chat about the economy and its impact on libraries, teen services, and you. The chat was a great experience—I really enjoyed hearing so many different voices chime in, and the opportunity to answer questions in real time. This was definitely the sort of thing that I believe is “engaging the YALSA community”! It seemed clear that more online chats were in YALSA’s future and so I’d like to announce our next one:

On Wednesday, July 1, 8-9pm EST YALSA will host an online chat in ALA Connect. The topic for this chat will be Summer Reading Programs for teens. We invite you to drop in, share ideas of what has worked for you (and hasn’t!) and what you’ve got planned for this summer. To participate in the chat you simply need to login to ALAConnect with your ALA member # and password at http://connect.ala.org/yalsa.

We’d also like to get your suggestions for future chat topics. Please leave your suggestions by leaving a comment to this blog post.

Thanks and I look forward to chatting with you on July 1st !
