The Scoop is a monthly e-mail newsletter containing fun, inspiring, and innovative ideas for library youth services. It is published by the youth services team at 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 block newsletter emails or other emails from unknown senders, considering them spam. One way around this is to add the Scoop to your “whitelist” (a list of accepted email senders).

Add to your whitelist to receive all emails associated with the Scoop.

If you use a web-based email service, you ought to have control of your accepted senders through your account options or tools. Look at your service’s help if you have trouble.

If your email is hosted by your organization, ask your email administrator about adding addresses to your whitelist.
