Flume Nominations

We are collecting nominations for the Flume Award. Please encourage high school teens to submit nominations of recently published fiction or nonfiction that appeals to readers in grades 9-12.

Nominations are accepted online at the Flume page at http://yals.nhlibrarians.org/book-awards/flume/. The award committee is planning to select a list this spring, which will be voted on in April 2018. No Flume Award will be given in 2017, but teens should submit nominations of their favorite new titles at any time.

Please contact Ann Hoey with your questions.

YALS meeting

Our next YALS meeting is Thursday the 26th at the Local Government Center, 25 Triangle Dr.,  Concord.  The meeting is scheduled from 10:00-12:00.    Any YALS member is invited and encouraged to come.

In addition to the officers’ reports, we will be discussing the Fall Conference, the Flume and Isinglass book awards, new YA books and programming ideas.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Teen Planning Presentation

teensreadHere is the Power Point Presentation that I put together to share at the Conference and then didn’t. It includes pictures of my teens at different events.  The last picture is of the group who attended our final Pizza party this past summer. Then I included the information on where to look for Youth Volunteer information.

I do want to mention that my Teens really love the Werewolves game, that Glenn Given from “Games by Play Date” first taught them.  They ask to play it almost every time we get together.
