Teen Tech Week + audiobooks = Amazing
Posted by: Mary Burkey
March 8-14 is the American Library Association’s Teen Tech Week, sponsored by YALSA. This is a perfect time to display & promote the audiobooks that have been named as Amazing Audiobooks for Young Adults. Or ALSC’s Notable Children’s Recordings, as that list includes titles recommended for listeners age 14 and under. And of course, this year’s Odyssey Award winner The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian and honor titles Curse of the Blue Tattoo, Elijah of Buxton, and Nation are sure-fire hits with teens. Tomorrow night is parent-teacher conference night in my school – a perfect opportunity to host a “How to Download” hands-on demo in my school library, showing parents how their public library card is the key to 24/7 educational & recreational materials available through the public libary web site. What a bonus that this is also “Read an Ebook Week“ – we’ll be downloading those as well!
