I now volunteer with the Hollywood Library Teen Book Council. The Hollywood Library has such robust programming that there is a regular Teen Council, as well as a Teen Book Council, as well as some other ways for teenagers to meet and talk about books. I love Portland, the Multnomah County Library, and Danielle, the Teen Librarian so much!

Then I ship my annotations back to Danielle and she puts them together in a post for the library’s website. It’s pretty cool.
In November, we watched The Great British Bake-Off and recommended books for the hosts as well as the contestants. Here’s the link to the final product:
