Ask yourself

  • 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 library workers or library school students as a way to keep the perspective of the site consistent and distinct.

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