about this item

For librarians who work in small or medium-sized libraries and are unlikely to have a teen services specialist, this guide explains young adult services. It describes the teen brain and other characteristics of teens; behavioral issues and how to have positive interactions with teens; finding and selecting materials for teen collections, how to do readers’ advisory, and how to booktalk with teens, as well as the concept of transliteracy; programming with and for teens, including planning, organizing, publicizing, and evaluating programs; the informational needs of teens, such as homework help, information literacy, using the library catalog and other resources, and dealing with school assignments; creating a teen-friendly library and spaces; advocating for teens and providing them equal access to materials and services; using them as volunteers and workers in the library; and professional development in teen services.
