February is an interesting month, and the February 2015 issue of RA News reflects that. If you often emphasize historical or contemporary fiction during Black History Month, try something a little different this year in your library. Think genre favorites featuring African-American teen protagonists! Deborah Taylor's article, Building Worlds and Solving Puzzles discusses several excellent titles in science fiction, fantasy, and mystery titles that would be perfect for a quick display or bookmark.
And of course February means Valentine's Day -- prime time to spotlight your Romance collection. Check out NoveList's "Looking for Love?" webinar to snag ideas for a scavenger hunt for your romance readers.  Take a few minutes to set up a program that won't take up a lot of staff time but will snag some programming statistics. Be sure to check out Romance for Non-Romance Readers by Jessica Zellers and Urban Fantasy for Paranormal Romance Readers by Molly Wetta's for more great perspectives on Romance reads.
