An invitation from OYAN to you - if you read YA or work with teens who read: Consider attending the 2021 Oregon Young Adult Network COMPLETELY VIRTUAL Oregon Mock Printz from 1-5 p.m. Saturday, January 16 on Zoom.

Using various features of the Zoom platform, we are planning an afternoon that is distant, safe, accessible, and so much fun!

YOU are invited! And teen readers are invited!


What do you have to do to get ready? Well - read. We ask participants to find and read all (or at least most) of the books on our carefully chosen Oregon's Mock Printz list. New development: All titles have been added to Library2Go, which is useful for ODLC member libraries!

Topic: Teen readers. We enthusiastically value the participation of teen readers in the Mock Printz.  Teen participants have to be willing to read the books (or read most of the books) and then spend an afternoon talking intensively with other teens and adults about books. That's a "not for me" proposition for a lot of teens, but for just the right people, it is MAGICAL. So, ask around. Maybe you'll find a couple of students who are up for giving it a try!

Ready to sign up? We're ready for you. Fill in this Google Form to tell us you want to be a part of the 2021 Mock Printz - and ask any teen participants to sign up as well: https://forms.gle/HK35ENMJ1kGoCUPA9
