By Tuccillo, Diane P.
Teen-Centered Library Service: Putting Youth Participation into Practice is a practical guide that can help you get teens involved in your library-in everything from book discussions, working with children, and author visits to collection development, community outreach, and even... fundraising. Drawing on research and best practices, as well as anecdotes and success stories from around the country, Diane P. Tuccillo makes the case for youth participation and shows you how to achieve it. Carefully organized chapters focus on reasons to make library teen participation a priority; promote understanding of historical perspectives pertaining to library youth participation; and examine successful and exciting ideas that today's school and public libraries can emulate. School and public libraries that are ready to embark on youth participation endeavors for the first time, as well as those that want to improve or enhance programs already in place, will benefit equally from the information shared here.Read more
