Teens review books for publishers--and you!

The members of the Teen Advisory Board at the Mukilteo Library work hard planning and putting on library programs, but that wasn't enough for them. They were eager to take on even more work reviewing books for publishers and were chosen by the American Library Association to be a Galley Group. Publishers send copies of books to the teens and the teens send reviews to the publishers. Win win!

The Mukilteo Beacon, our local newspaper, heard about the program and asked one of the teens to explain it to their readers. Zoe Jovanovich's article was published today and it's great! This is a great example of how teens can contribute to their library and their community.

So, what new books are we seeing? 2012 will bring fallen angels, cute demons, Cinderella as a cyborg and much, much more--and our teens will review it all!
