You read it first

Last week I went to the Public Library Association conference in Boston. Want to know the best part? Lots and lots of books! (Those of you who were on the Best Books for Young Adults panel last year know what I mean.) Publishers all exhibit their new wares in the form of "advanced reader copies" - copies of the books before they actually come out in print. That means you get to read the books before anyone can buy them.

Well, lucky for all of you, I gathered numerous books to bring to the next YAB meeting. They'll be available for "check-out" to members of YAB, as long as you agree to write a review. If you want to know more, or are curious to see what I got, then come to the next YAB meeting on Tuesday, April 11 at 4:30pm in the Library Activity Room.

In honor of Steve Almond's upcoming visit to talk about his book, Candyfreak, I'm going to re-decorate the Teen Corner with candy wrappers. With that in mind I have a request for all of you out in FML Teen Land - bring me your trash! Okay, not really. I just want your candy wrappers. So, the next time you gobble up a Snickers or a Kit Kat, save the wrapper and bring it to the library (just don't eat the candy *at* the library).

Next YAB Meeting

We have a new format for YAB meetings now. The first meeting of every month is an activity/fun-only meeting, while the second meeting of the month is business/book reviews/program planning meeting.

Do you know what that means? Our next meeting is a fun-only meeting! We will meet on Tuesday, March 14 at 4:30pm in the Library Activity Room.

Join us for a poker tournament. Don't know how to play poker? No problem! There are plenty of members who are willing to share their knowledge. Snacks and poker chips (aka candy) will be provided.
