NPR: Libraries and Teens

An article ran on NPR this week that talked about how while overall library use is down, it has increased when it comes to teens.

YALSA President Shannon Peterson says about Teen Tech Week, ""The range of programs is amazing,... from creating and programming mini computers ... to learning how to produce, record and market your own music with local musicians." Some libraries mashed up print and digital by helping young people film book trailers and create"Read Boxes" — like the Red Box movie kiosks — with QR codes for others to view and rate the trailers."
