Using Web 2.0 To Promote YA Lit With Teen Patrons

I have added some new posts tonight to my library blog, http://theunquietlibrary.wordpress.com, to promote some wonderful YA Lit 2.0 resources available to teen readers! Book publishers, authors, and organizations dedicated to promoting YA lit now have blogs, Twitter accounts, My Space pages, Facebook pages, and You Tube channels that provide interviews, book updates, podcasts, and videos to help teens communicate one on one with their favorite authors. Please take a peek at some of my favorite resources!
