What is new, what is hot in the field of services for teens?  How can we engage teens to read and share their passion for reading?  The on-line teen book club that has been put up at the Eleanor London Cote-Saint-Luc Public Library is a perfect example of what could be done with a great idea, passion and perseverance.  Valerie Medzalabanleth, Manager of Children’s Services, presented her project of implementing an on-line book club for teenagers.

The event, organised by the School and Youth sections on April 8th 2013 was a huge success!  The talk allowed us to understand the issues connected to the introduction of this new service, the preparation, the technical specifications, the facts related to the choices of books and the creation of the entries.

Quebec Committee for New National School Library Standards

A Quebec committee is now being formed to work on the new book on national school library standards to be published by the Canadian Library Association. The book will be published as an eBook in English and French, and will be launched in May 2014 at the annual CLA conference.

The standards are being written by committees in each province. Each committee will be made up of a "learning commons" team: a school board librarian, a community librarian, a school library technician, a principal, a teacher, a parent, and a student.

Personal stories, digital policies and animated discussion were the order of the evening at the school library section E-book event. Participants were eager to share and discuss experiences using and purchasing e-books and multiple platforms in schools. There was an encouraging turnout, with representatives from public as well as CEGEP libraries. This evening addressing e-books and digital formats in a school context was held on April 20th, 2012 in the Centennial Academy library.
