Subject: STEM resources, Teen Read Week, summer learning & more from YALSA

Here are some resources from YALSA that we hope will be of interest:

Up Your STEM Game
Last month YALSA published our Top Reads: STEM and Making.  This compilation of the best articles, blog posts, and other resources is available for $29 as a digital download. ALA/YALSA members get a 10% discount.  This quick read is full of tested ideas that you can implement at your own library.  http://bit.ly/2mJE1i1

Your Web Links to YALSA Book Awards and Lists
In January YALSA launched the Teen Book Finder Database, which is a free, fully searchable site containing titles from all YALSA's book awards and selected lists.  This site is replacing all the web pages on the ala.org/yalsa/booklists part of YALSA's web site, except for the current year's nominations and latest winners.  If you have bookmarked these pages on your library's site, please change those to the database: http://booklists.yalsa.net/.  The old web pages will only be available until May 1.

Summer Learning Resources
As you prepare for summer learning activities, don't forget to check out the free resources and discussion forms at http://summerreading.ning.com/.  Access free on-demand webinars, download a free teen summer intern toolkit and more.

Unleash Your Story
That's the theme for the 2017 Teen Read Week, which will be held Oct. 9 - 14.  Beginning April 10, visit www.ala.org/teenread<http://www.ala.org/teenread> for ready-to-use resources and grant applications.

Speak up for Teens & Libraries!
The White House budget released earlier this month calls for the elimination of the Institute of Museum and Library Services and all the federal funding earmarked for the nation's libraries.  There are many ways for you to take action as a library worker and as private citizen.  Get the details and free, ready to use messages here: http://bit.ly/2oaiVZD
