Check out this cool project. Teen patients in pediatric hospitals across the United States and Canada will receive 10,000 young adult novels, audiobooks, and graphic novels Thursday as readergirlz and the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) celebrate the second annual Support Teen Lit Day on April 17. This unprecedented teen literacy program, coined “Operation TBD” (short for Teen Book Drop), will put free books—altogether valued at more than $175,000—donated by 20 book publishers into the hands of many of the teens most in need of solace, entertainment and a sense of personal accomplishment. After all, long-term hospital stays can be difficult on many levels—for teenagers and their families.
The content of this blog will be the random and sporadic musings of a tech happy teacher librarian. I'm inspired by using technology with students, professional development for teachers, am an avid reader (especially YA fantasy genre), and have a slight obsession with live music and discovering new musicians. I may occasionally have to share my feelings about reality shows (like American Idol and The Bachelor) which are my off-brain guilty pleasure.
