Libraries creating content for/with children and young adults Libraries have always created content, writing reviews, organising writing clubs or collecting oral tradition for instance, and editing and publishing it in different ways, confidential or not. But content development has greatly increased in the last decade, thanks to the much larger inclusion of readers in library life and of course, thanks to technology. It makes collecting, recording, creating, publishing and accessing so much easier and more possible to most, not only to librarians but to young readers and their families. How is this content creation happening? What kind of content is being created, how, who by, with what goals? How are these actions helping children and/or young adults and their families engage with reading? How is local content being published and preserved? How is it being received all over the world?
