Welcome to Think Outside the Stacks 
Serving youth in libraries takes a lot of information and inspiration, and it doesn’t always come from library sources. Education, pop culture, business, and a variety of other fields all have ideas to inspire us and make our work better. Let me send you the best ideas from across the youth-focused internet straight to your inbox twice a month. Go ahead and sign-up! It’s always free and I promise to keep your email private.

Who are you?
Hi! I’m Beth and I have been serving children and teens in libraries for over ten years. My professional highlights include serving on the 2012 Michael L. Printz Award committee and the 2015 Margaret A. Edwards Award committee. When I’m not writing the newsletter, blogging for Teen Services Underground, or reading I like to knit and participate in fandom. You can find me on Twitter @BethReads.
