Kellie Cannon talked to the Youth Journalism Group about the Teen section in the Denver Public Library. We learned about many different kinds of books, such as "The Strange Case of Origami Yoda," " Red Blazer Girls, " "The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks," and many other interesting books. Kellie told us that teen publishing is very popular now. Jane Austin is also getting very popular.
She also talked to us about how books are chosen to come into the library. There are things called galleys, where people read books before they are accepted into the library. The books are chosen by the purchasing department in the library, where they have profiles to choose the books. Profiles are statistics that tell the book company what kind of books will be most popular in the library.
Kellie also told us that in the Denver Public Library, there are activities such as Summer of Reading and other reading clubs that have many fun activities. In the library, there will always be something that will catch different people’s interest. There is something that everyone will like at the Denver Public Library.
