Teenagers, reading and libraries

It’s a while since I’ve blogged about this, so I thought I would do a quick update on useful wesbsites, blogs etc.

UKYA is a great new site celebrating teen fiction set in Britain. It’s packed with helpful information. The Teen Librarian blog is extremely useful for all sorts of ideas for good library provision for teenagers. It’s well worth signing up to Teen Librarian Monthly to keep up to date. YA Library UK is always very pertinent and thought-provoking. The latest blog post is on teen volunteers in the library. Have a look through the archives too. There’s also an interesting article about teenagers and reading on the Scottish Book Trust blog. For those of you who have not seen it, this is an article on teenagers, reading and libraries I wrote for IBBYlink.

The photo was taken at South Woodford Library in Redbridge, where the teen area was designed by young people.
