Three new ‘Quick Reads’ books published

PLA published three new books in its Quick Reads for Busy Librarians series in 2018. The Quick Reads series features publications under 100 pages long and covering topics deemed essential to modern public library workers. Taking Care of Business in the 21st Century focuses on library service to entrepreneurs and “solopreneurs” — individuals who operate a business completely on their own. PLA 2018: Ten Essential Programs consists of ten essays highlighting educational programs that took place at the PLA 2018 Conference in Philadelphia, Penn. Teaching Early Literacy to Teen Parents contains practical, tried, and tested advice for any public library to get started or to improve teen parent programming. All three books are available free of charge to PLA personal members in good standing and can be accessed through the PLA Member Library (ALA Connect login required).
