Operation Teen Book Drop is tomorrow!
It's time for Operation Teen Book Drop (TBD), an annual event held in honor of Support Teen Literature Day. On Thursday, April 15th, 2010, - the combined efforts of readergirlz, Guys Lit Wire, YALSA, and If I Can Read I Can Do Anything - will be dropping over 10,000 new YA books, donated by publishers, into the hands of teens on Native American tribal lands. Nationwide, librarians, over 100 YA authors, and teens will drop YA books in their own communities. YOU CAN PARTICIPATE IN THIS AWESOME PROJECT BY DROPPING A NEW OR GENTLY USED BOOK SOMEWHERE IN YOUR COMMUNITY FOR SOMEONE TO FIND! Participants can download bookplates to insert into the books they'll leave behind at the Readergirlz website.
