Operation Teen Book Drop

Did you know that April 15, 2010 is Support Teen Literature Day? I didn’t. But I have heard of Operation Teen Book Drop, an effort by Readergirlz, GuysLitWire, and the YALSA to get teens, authors, and librarians to donate brand new YA books to teens in hospitals around the United States on that day. Operation TBD is back  for a third year and the organization, If I Can Read I Can Do Anything, is joining the effort to get books to teens on Native American reservations.

To celebrate the day all four organizations are trying to get as many books as possible donated. Librarians, YA authors, and teens are also invited to leave books in public places in their own communities for others to read.

    I just wanted to write a note on here that I’m trying really hard to get the literacy organization I’m involved with to participate in this!!
