A big thanks to Stephen Moon, Roosevelt Branch Manager, for sharing this information. “Moon issued a challenge to library workers and volunteers to develop ideas for events.” – Steve Puro “We did a challenge to suggest a theme for each month and [teen library helper and Union High Senior] Chance Turnbull suggested the Hobbit Party. He focused and came up with all the activities we are enjoying today,” Moon said. Read full news article: http://www.ubmedia.biz/ubstandard/news/article_d80d07a8-7cb8-11e3-a00d-0019bb2963f4.html

The Young Adult Services Division of Ohio Library Council compiled a creative collection of programs for every month in the calendar year. Each month contains detailed program descriptions including staff, materials, cost, and activity ideas that can be incorporated in your library. In addition, there are useful links to additional resources such as reading lists and presentations related to the programs. “We know you’re doing more with less. We know your time is valuable. We also know you run out of ideas sometimes. These monthly suggestions are meant to assist you in your effort to reach teens through innovative and creative program and displays.” – Chanda Smith, 2010 Coordinator, OLC Young Adult Services Division Many thanks to this grateful and talented Ohio collaboration!
