No, this book isn’t out yet. But you can help make it so. Below is a message from the co-authors seeking input. I wanted to share it here with any readers so as to spread the message far and wide. Besides, I know the authors and they super cool YA librarians and super cool people.
Subject: We need your feedback to make the 4th edition of Connecting Young Adults and Libraries the best, ever!
Hello teen librarians, LSTs, youth advocates, library school professors, grad school students, and anyone else who might have an interest in helping shape the next edition of Connecting Young Adults and Libraries, the book that Mary K. Chelton claims “has everything—clear philosophical goals for the service grounded in developmental assets; an incredible list of how-tos by authors who have been there, done that; a lively text; and a rock-solid understanding of the real kids who need us, not the fantasy kids we often confuse with them.”
