Descriptions

No matter what your library has or doesn't have, the teens in your community need YOU!  Learn some quick tips to reach teens where they are, to be relevant to them, and to get and stay connected to them on any budget or schedule. Jenine Lillian will cover her research and results from developing Cool Teen Programs for Under $100, working with reluctant readers, and will speak to what teens need and want from the mentors and community leaders in their lives. You became a YA Librarian to make a difference. Here's your chance to shine!

After attending this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Engage teens in their library community using innovative strategies
  • Develop a new approach toward reluctant readers, multiple learning formats, and what literacy looks like for teens today
  • Promote services and involve teens in library events, collection development, and leadership in their community
