CHICAGO — The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), the fastest-growing division of the American Library Association (ALA), invites proposals for a poster session on exceptional Teen Tech Week™ events, to be held at ALA Annual Conference, Washington, D.C., June 24-29, 2010.

Sponsored by YALSA’s Technology for Young Adults committee, this poster session will highlight successful and innovative library services and programs from Teen Tech Week that integrate technology in a way that is effective, affordable and replicable at other libraries. Poster presentations will highlight the main points or components of your best practice in a way that participants can easily learn about a topic.

“The Teen Tech Week technology poster sessions give librarians the chance to show off their innovative and interesting ideas,” said Linda Braun, YALSA president. “Colleagues who attend the session will walk away with a wealth of great new ideas for future Teen Tech Week programs.”

Proposals will be accepted online at
www.ala.org/yalsa through Oct. 16. Questions should be directed to Nichole Gilbert at
ngilbert@ala.org. Applicants will be notified of their status in December.

For more than 50 years, YALSA has been the world leader in selecting books, videos and audio books for teens. For more information about YALSA or for lists of recommended reading, viewing and listening, go to www.ala.org/yalsa/booklists, or contact the YALSA office by phone, (800) 545-2433, ext. 4390, or e-mail,
