Introducing: #yalove Lit Chats

Do you know what happens when one librarian has a great idea then asks other librarians if they like the idea? You get a gaggle of librarians starting a new adventure! Introducing #yalove lit chats for the YA booklover in all of us! Twice a month we will be chatting about books with focused topics. Join us the first and third Thursdays using #yalove on Twitter. This is a perfect place to find your next favorite book and to connect with readers like you. We'll house all the information and back chats on our Wiki page - bookmark us! Our first chat is March 6th and we'll be talking about dystopians.
