In which TLT has a very important (and exciting!) announcement to make
Heather, Robin, Amanda and I are very excited and incredibly honored to announce that Teen Librarian Toolbox is becoming a part of the School Library Journal blog network. In order to make this transition, the SLJ tech people have to do a couple of technical things, which will be happening this weekend. TLT may experience a few technical hiccups or be down a couple of days while this transition is made. This will probably not happen, but it is possible.
Have no fear! TLT will resume as normal as soon as possible. The URL will not change, you will continue to find us at www.teenlibrariantoolbox.com. You will continue to hear us share our thoughts on books, libraries, pop culture, teen issues and more. And we will continue to ask you to share yours with us because we value being a part of a dialogue that helps us all better advocate for and serve our teenage population. The only thing that will change is that we now get to be a part of the SLJ family, and that’s a pretty awesome thing. As a librarian I have been reading SLJ for a little over 20 years now and it is so amazing to get to be a part of their good work for libraries and youth in this way.
Wait – there is one other small change. We are moving from Blogger to WordPress. Heather, Robin and Amanda all have experience with WordPress. I, however, do not. So there might be a little bit of a learning curve for me. We hope to have any and all bugs ironed out as soon as possible.
Thank you all for reading TLT. We greatly value having a space to talk about the things that we love and think about it, and people to talk about them with. TLT is my baby and we will continue to work hard to do this thing that we love in the best ways that we can. When you join us again next week, look for the School Library Journal header and know that Heather, Robin, Amanda and I are squeeing with delight in the background.
