New York Library Association

File under “blatant self promotion.”

On April 29th, I will be giving the keynote for the New York Library Association YSS Spring Conference! More at the brochure.

I will be talking about about what the future of libraries and youth services might hold – linked to “Pop Goes the Library”. (Further blatant self promotion: along with Sophie Brookover, I wrote a book called Pop Goes the Library: Using Pop Culture to Connect to Your Whole Community. Disclaimer: Yes, if you purchase, I get royalties. Interesting point: having authored a book, I am now ineligible for the Morris Award.)


I am both insanely excited and nervous about the keynote. Especially as my competition is “the” wedding. Perhaps I should wear a tiara or fancy hat?

What’s also interesting — how the pop culture landscape of books & children & the future of libraries have changed so dramatically in the past six months. Seriously, every day I change what I’m going to say based on what is in the news that day!

Hope to see you in Rochester!

  1. Liz, will you by sharing your thoughts about what you see as the future of libraries and youth services? I see a lot of information on the future of libraries in general but not specifically services to children and teens.
