It's time for Operation Teen Book Drop 2010!
We want YOU to leave a book in a public place TODAY, Thursday, April 15th, 2010. Nationwide, librarians, authors, and teens will drop YA books in their own communities today to raise awareness for Operation TBD 2010 and Support Teen Literature Day. Participants can download bookplates to insert into the books they'll leave behind. Click here to get the bookplates from the readergirlz website.
You may also purchase books from the TBD Wish Lists which will go directly to two tribal school libraries. Click here to learn how to purchase books for students at Ojo Encino Day School and Alchesay High School.
Operation TBD is brought to you by readergirlz, GuysLitWire, YALSA, and If I Can Read I Can Do Anything. These organizations will be dropping over 10,000 new YA books, donated by publishers, into the hands of teens on Native American tribal lands.
Everyone will join an online TBD Post-Op party tonight at 6 PM PST / 9 PM EST that evening at the readergirlz blog, where we also invite you to post a picture or video that shows how you rocked the drop. Example: Check out Crissa-Jean Chappell's stealthy book drop.
Are you participating? What books did you donate, and where did you drop them?
