The Scoop is a monthly e-mail newsletter containing fun, inspiring, and innovative ideas for library youth services. It is published by Read to Me, a service of the Idaho Commission for Libraries for school and public library staff who are interested in improving services to children and young adults.

Some email systems filter out newsletters as junk mail. If you have trouble subscribing to or receiving the Scoop, please read our list of common solutions.

We welcome contributions to The Scoop from Idaho library staff. Please send ideas, articles and photos to Stephanie Bailey-White or call with suggestions (1-800-458-3271). We love photos of library programs, but need to get permission from parents to publish photos of children. Download the photo release form. Thanks!

We want you!
