New YA Books

  • Books


What is it?

Newcastle City Library now has 50 new young adult books. A member of the reading hack group researched the most popular books (variety of genres) in YA fiction. The hacker then purchased the new books. Once the books were delivered the hacker reorganised the teenage section of the library before shelving the books. This hack should hopefully encourage more teenagers to take books out of the library as the books that the section already had were outdated. The title of the section has also been changed to young adult as it was previously called teenage fiction.


Funding is essential for this hack as books will need to be purchased. Once you have the funding you will need to buy the books and shelve them (reorganisation may be required).
