Serving Our Teens

From ALA:

"As part of the year-long National Forum on Libraries and Teens effort, YALSA has released a report, “The Future of Library Services for and with Teens: A Call to Action” providing direction on how libraries need to adapt and change to meet the needs of 21st century teens. Visit here to download the report and executive summary today!   Join the discussion on Twitter with the hashtag #yalsaforum.

The report is a call to action for the library community.  It provides recommendations on how libraries must address challenges and re-envision their teen services in order to meet the needs of their individual communities and to collectively ensure that the nation’s 40+ million teens develop the skills they need to be productive citizens.  By acting on this call, the library community can work within their own local communities to create the kind of spaces, services, and opportunities that today’s teens need in order to succeed in school and in life."
