What does it take to develop a library program that addresses the needs of teens in your community?  More than that, what happens once the teens come in your door?  Join Erin Downey Howerton, librarian and teen specialist, for a dialogue about the teen presence in your library.  Learn about the elements crucial to working with teens, managing expectations of administrators and front-line staff, and developing a plan for dealing with the highs and lows of teens... in YOUR library.
