A Great Way to Find YA Horror Books!

Here at Aldine we get a lot of teens asking for our scary books, and while we will always help you find that book you're looking for, we thought we'd share this gem so you can find your next spooky book on your own as well. Something Wicked Comes of Age is a blog two Baltimore librarians maintain as a resource for awesome horror books for teens! When you first go to it you might think it's just like any other tumblr.

Aldine Teens! Check out these nerdy books!

While we always have displays that any book-nerd would love in our YA area, this time we have books for nerds! Whether you live for fan fiction, dream of hacking The Man, picture your life as Steam Punk, or just love collecting retro things: this book display has something for you!

So nerdy teens of Aldine gather at the Pac Man display and find the next book you're going to love!

Future Prep kicks off with a Resume Workshop!

Future prep is a series of programs designed to help teenagers think about life after High School. Whether they know exactly what they want to do and need help figuring out how to get there, or if they haven't given it much thought and want to explore a few different options, Future Prep programs will help Aldine teens get to where they want to go.

Scary Books! YA display

Hey teens, are you looking for a new bone chilling book? Well, look no further then the YA book display area! There are books about ghosts, vampires, killers, zombies, and other horrors that will make you want to leave that lights on at night, or at least scream out once... or twice... maybe a few times...

Teen Hangs is back!

Teen Hang Promotional Flier

After a long hiatus for Summer Reading, Teen Hangs is returning! Starting this week every Monday at 3:00pm we're going to have game consoles, computers, and game tables set up for teen enjoyment. Oh, there's also snacks and drinks every week too. So it's probably the coolest best thing you could do Monday afternoons, so you should probably start coming and never stop.

APE made new decorations for the YA area

Our APE volunteers have done it again! They've made some fun "book facing" posters to encourage all y'all to use the library to it's fullest and Read YA. Whether it's a vampire novel, a coming of age tale, or a bone chilling dystopia; YA literature has something for everyone. And now, we have posters to remind you of it!

Aldine Chimes into the #WeNeedDiverseBooks Campaign

Today was the official launch of the the #WeNeedDiverseBooks campaign! A hashtag campaign trying to give voice to the need for books that reflect the many varied experiences people have walking this Earth, and call attention to the fact that the books being published right now don't reflect diversity we see at Aldine everyday. Please read more about the #WeNeedDiverseBooks campaign on it's website.

I was so excited about this campaign I wanted to get the whole Aldine community involved! Here are a few thoughts by a few teens about why we need diverse books!
