Create Your Own YA Book Cover

My Faux YA Book Cover

My Faux YA Book Cover

Hey Teens! Here’s a fake YA Book Cover that I created online.  Want to try it out?  Follow these directions…


1 – Go to “Fake Name Generator” or click

The name that appears is your author name.

2 – Go to “Random Word Generator” or click

The word listed under “Random Verb” is your title.

3 – Go to “FlickrCC” or click

Type your title into the search box. The first photo that contains a person is your cover.

4 – Use Photoshop, Picnik, or similar to put it all together. Be sure to crop and/or zoom in.


Teen Podcast

Hey Teens!

I know this is our Book Blog, but I wanted to mention another cool online offering from the NBPL Teen Department…

Right now it’s another way for us to get our programs and book offerings out to the public, but we’d like it to become much more!!

Check it out at:
