News from the York Public Library YA Spaces

Danielle Fortin, Guest writer

There’s a new face at the York Public Library. Danie Fortin (she/her) recently started as the new Young Adult Librarian. Danie has worked at libraries for many years, with a focus on working with teens and children. She is passionate about advocating for and with teens and is looking forward to meeting everyone in York. Danie would love it if students from YHS stopped by to say hey.

The York Public Library is excited to announce the start of a Teen Advisory Group. A Teen Advisory Group (TAG) is a group of teens that work with the YA Librarian to improve the YA spaces, programming, and collections of the library. Members help select materials, plan events, and influence how the library serves teens. Members can also earn volunteer/community service hours as well as a letter of participation, which looks awesome on college applications. Currently the TAG will meet on the first and third Friday of each month from 3:30 – 4:30 PM. Stop by the library for an interest form or fill out the Google Form here:
Do you like subscription boxes but hate the cost? Starting in February the library will bring back Book Boxes for teens! Each Book Box will feature two surprise books, a snack, a craft, and more. Each season we’ll be making 10 Book Boxes, so watch for the sign ups if you are interested. February’s theme is Hygge/Comfort.
