About the Network

If you are an adocate for using children's / young adult literature
to promote literacy, we invite you to become a part of our Network!

Find Network Members by clicking on the links below. Currently most members are located in North America, so this region is further divided by states (alphabetically and by IRA geographic regions) and by provinces.

Resources are accessed by geographic area. Click on the geographic area (listed below as both areas of the world and states within the U.S.), then find the resources link. This is the next phase of our network project. We plan to list authors of children's and young adult literature by geography and also pertinent literature award programs, events, places of interest, and related organizations. We invite all network members as well as others to assist in this undertaking by sending relevant information to the IRA CL/R SIG Network Coordinator.

For a sample of what is to come, check out California. Note that the page you reach lists the Network members in that state.  From that page click on the directory link located close to the top of the page entitled "Resources Related to Children's / Young Adult Literature from California."

More information about the network and ideas for using it are available.
