YALSA is planning a new publication, YALSA’s Complete Summer Reading Program Manual for Teen and Tween Services.

Kat Kan, the book’s editor, is looking for information on summer reading programs and the other kinds of programming libraries do for teens and tweens during the summer.’  Want more information or interested in submitting your summer reading program? Visit the book’s website!

Don’t worry about completing every single question on the submission form if your library hasn’t done certain kinds of programs.’  Submissions must come from ALA/YALSA members; if at least one person in a group is a YALSA member, use that person’s ALA member number.’  If you haven’t yet joined YALSA but plan to do so very soon, go ahead and submit your program.

We’d like to hear about all kinds of programs, and about programs for different kinds of audiences.’  If you’ve done anything with incarcerated teens, with teen parents, with teens living in group homes or shelters, with teens who are differently abled – both physical and mental – please submit your programs.’  If you use social networking tools to run your programs, please submit them.

Submissions are due May 1.

    How much is this book going to cost? If it’s going to be another typical ALA book, it will be at least 3 times as much as it should be (in both print and ebook formats), guaranteeing that a fairly low percentage of libraries will purchase it.

  2. We haven’t priced the book yet but appreciate the feedback.
