Teen Library Day
Each fall the department hosts Teen Library Day where a guest author visits the campus to speak to local middle school and high school students. There is a book sale and book signing, followed by a campus tour for visiting students. The event is usually held in October or November. Check back for more information, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For older editions of Added Entries email email@example.com.
The Book Review is held each fall and spring semester. At each session, participants select children and young adult books donated by publishers to be reviewed. Reviews are submitted by participants and compiled into a book published by the department. Reviews are also posted in the Children's Literature Comprehensive Database (CLCD).
