  • Are you prepared to discuss constructive criticism and work with our editors to craft your review?
  • Are you flexible in reviewing different genres and types of titles aimed at different age ranges? 

Please understand that we only accept applications from librarians or library school students as a way to keep the perspective of the site consistent and distinct.

We can offer review copies of titles (both in print and in digital formats) and a chance to write for a professionally recognized resource.
