Using Pop Culture to Make Libraries Better.

by Sophie Brookover, Liz Burns, Melissa Rabey, Susan Quinn, John Klima, Carlie Webber, Karen Corday, and Eli Neiburger. We're librarians. We're pop culture mavens. We're Pop Culture Librarians.


I Want My MP3

How much do I love that the headline for J. Marin Younker's recent musings on how to age gracefully in teen librarianship is a riff on the old timey "I Want My MTV" tagline? So much.

It should come as no surprise that I love Younker's suggestions, too, many of which echo the exhortations you often read at this very blog -- strike up casual conversations with teens, keep up with sports, learn about video games, read teen-friendly music magazines like Rolling Stone, SPIN, and VIBE, know what movies & TV shows teens like, read Ypulse to stay on top of trends, and my favorite, Think Like A Correspondent for Entertainment Weekly!

I feel a congratulatory Letter to the Editor coming on.
