About

Youth Services Corner presents resources for librarians and others who work with tweens and teens. Posts focus on books, other pop culture, libraries, librarians, websites, and any other interesting items I find.

Some recurring features are:

  • Library Spotlight: A look at library teen webpages, teen spaces and/or librarians from around the country (and maybe the world?)
  • Reviews: Of books, professional literature, movies, tv shows, websites, music, etc.
  • Program ideas for libraries
  • Links of the week: Links to interesting news articles and blog posts from the week
  • Box Office Preview: A rundown of new movies of interest to tweens and teens
  • Books to Movies: A preview of upcoming movies based on books
  • Feature articles: Longer posts on a variety of topics

Who’s behind it?

My name is Whitney and I’m interested in library youth services. I received my MLIS from UCLA in 2008 and I currently work as a teen librarian for a large public library system in WA. I read a lot of YA lit and participate in the online YA community and in YALSA activities.
