Welcome to the Center for Literature for Young Readers

English Department, Youngstown State University,

The main goal of the Center for Literature for Young Readers, or the LYRE Center is to encourage and support research and scholarship in the areas of children's and young adult literature from multiple perspectives, represented by the interdisciplinary expertise of the Center's primary and affiliated faculty.

To support this goal, the Center will: 


sponsor lectures, presentations, and workshops by authors and illustrators of books for young readers and other experts in the field


provide a collection of books for children and young adults and for those interested in the best ways to teach this literature (housed in the Wilcox Curriculum Resource Center of Youngstown State University's Maag Library) 


edit The LYRE Review, an online review of new books for young readers, written by young readers themselves.  

All of these resources are available to members of the community as well as faculty and students of Youngstown State University.  

The LYRE Center is located on the campus of Youngstown State University.  To contact us, please e-mail Dr. Rebecca Barnhouse at or call 330-941-3420.
