New for teens: A blog looking for a name

Last week, we excitedly launched a new blog just for teens and young adults. It will provide great stuff: book reviews and recommendations, suggestions for cool and useful websites, a heads up on teen events and programs and much, much more.

What it's missing is a name! 

Sure, we have some ideas, and our Teen Advisory Group helped us narrow it down, but we would like to hear from more teens - after all, this blog is for you!

What do you think about Reading Riot? Or Teen Shelf? Maybe we should go with Book Thirst? Or do you have a creative and unique title to suggest? We'd love to hear it!  You can cast your vote at any Fauquier County Public Library location, or you can take our online poll and let us know what you think.

The new blog is written by Fauquier County Public Library youth librarian Ann McDuffie, who works closely with the teen community near the Bealeton library, including its Teen Advisory Group.  Ann will be looking to expand the Bealeton library's teen program early next year with a Teen Writing Club. You guessed it; the first place you will hear more details about that will be her blog.

If you are a teenager, I hope you will check out our new blog. If you are the parent of a teen, it is a good resource for you too. After all, it will give you a central source for news about what is hot in young adult literature and information about local teen events at your library.

Check it out, cast your vote and make it one of your go-to sources for teen info and resources!

Happy Reading!
