If you read this blog regularly, you might have noticed that there was a period of a couple months without many updates. That was because we were figuring out how to make this blog the best it could be — and we think we have it. We now have a group of eight teen librarians from throughout the city who will be blogging on a strict schedule, which should result in at least two blogs each week.
We’ll also be changing the focus of our blog posts: instead of posting blogs informing you of upcoming programs at individual libraries (which you can find on our event calendar), we’ll be talking about things that we hope will be of interest to teens throughout the City of Pittsburgh. Here are some of the things we’ll include:
- Reviews of books, movies and other materials
- News items of interest to teens
- Scholarship or contest information
- Information about large, systemwide programs (things like the Ralph Munn Creative Writing Workshops and Contest, Behind the Book: Authors Talk to Teens, and the Heinz Endowment Public Art Contest)
Over the next few weeks, I hope to add a few new sections to the blog, including bios of the blog authors so you can get an idea of who’s talking to you.
