Robin’s 10 Favorite Posts of 2013
2013 has been a banner year at Teen Librarian’s Toolbox! (Especially for me, since this is my first year.) Here are my 10 favorite TLT posts from this year, in no particular order:
The one where Karen talks about racial stereotypes and their impact on our teens (including the backlash from the world’s most adorable cereal commercial.)
The one about how the internet is only ‘free’ if you can pay for it. What.
The one where Karen is brave enough to call out an actor on her favorite show for being (at the very least) thoughtless.
The one where Christie teaches us how to deal with library life by channeling The Avengers.
The one where Heather takes actual teens to a conference and the world doesn’t come to an end.
The one where we acknowledge that working in a library doesn’t protect you from…anything, really.
The one where I try to help everyone learn to use Tumblr, and mostly help Karen.
The one where Karen gets bonus points for asking A.S. King her most morbid interview question ever.
The one where Christie advocates giving teens boxcutters. (Just kidding, it’s the TPiB about Duct Tape crafts.)
This list of telltale signs that you work with teens. Don’t skip the comments!
