What is PAYA?
In yesterdays blog, I mentioned about http://bringya2pa.blogspot.com... So what is it all about?
PAYA is a coalition of Pennsylvania’s young adult authors, bloggers, librarians, readers, and other book-lovers. Our mission is two-fold:
1. To share the love we have for young adult literature with others in our state
2. To raise money to support Pennsylvania’s libraries, with a focus on helping build Young Adult library collections and Young Adult services.
Authors, are you interested in participating in the PAYA Festival? If so, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
f you’re a PA librarian interested in learning more about how PAYA can help your library, please email us to discuss things such as a bookdrive or donations.
**Please note that we must work with a librarian for these things. If you are not a librarian but know your library is in need of help, please show them the site.
LITERARY BOOK DRIVE:
Every month from October to next July the PAYA group will be featuring a PA library in need of a YA collection. Each library will provide a wish list of YA or MG books they’d like for their collection.
This month the book drive is to help the Wyalusing Public Library, located in Bradford County.

This is something thought up by two young bloggers after hearing about the cut backs in libraries in the PA area, a terrific idea as you might have heard in my radio show last night with Willow author Julia Hoban.
