Teen Read Week

The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) announced the 2012 Teens’ Top 10 book list during Teen Read Week, October 14-20. These books can be found in the fiction section of the IRC.

“YALSA is a national association of librarians, library workers and advocates whose mission is to expand and strengthen library services for teens, aged 12-18.”

“Pursuit” by Carrie Sha

What is that weird sculpture in the middle of the IRC?

“It’s simply a reminder of where we are now and where we want to go. “Pursuit” is about that spirit that drives us forward- from our studies (lower figure) to the future (upper figure). But this piece cannot be complete without you. It’s your dreams that belong on those steps- so please feel free to write down your aspirations on the post-it notes and visit this sculpture on exhibit in the IRC.”

Dream On,
Carrie Sha

On exhibit: 10/1 – 11/15
