YA Round-up

Hello, readers. I’m considering moving this semi-regular feature over to the CLASY blog in the near future. The focus of my blog may be changing soon and I think the YA Round-up might be better suited for the CLASY readership. As much as I love YA, I think I want to start using this space to explore broader issues of youth librarianship and collections. What do you think? 

But for now … onto the latest links round-up. Here are a few interesting YA-related links which caught my eye  over the last week or so.

  • CLASY’s going to Halifax. Canadian Libraries Are Serving Youth (CLASY) are hosting a pre-conference event at the CLA national conference in Halifax.
  • Canadian book review journal Resource Links has released its “Best of” list for 2010. Scroll down to find their picks for top Fiction Grades 7 – 12 and Non-Fiction Grades 7 – 12.
  • YA Library UK discusses Creating a Teen Offer without Staff or a Budget, the first post in their On a Shoestring series.
  • YA Librarian Sarah shares some nuggets of wisdom as she celebrates Two Years on the Job.
  • The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America have announced the finalists for the Andre Norton Award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy.
  • Finals Service: Illinois Library Association’s YA blog/newsletter on designing teen programing around exam time.
  • Dear George Clooney, Please Marry My Mom by Susin Nielsen was named the winner of the inaugural CBC’s Bookies award in the YA category, beating out nominees Plain Kate, Mockingjay, The Secret Fiend, and The Awakening.

  1. I like the idea of you posting this on the CLASY blog.

    I was excited to see White Cat and Mockingjay on the list of nominees for the Andre Norton Award.

  2. Great set of links. I’m also psyched to see Mockingjay get some love!
