Rethinking how to do and what to do in libraries for teens

Rethinking how to do and what to do in libraries for teens | BeadingBookBuzz | Scoop.it

"Nothing is as it was just a decade ago when it comes to libraries and teens. The changes that we see are partly a result of the technology that is a part of teen lives every day of their lives. If teens no longer have to visit the library to find information and to check-out materials for pleasure based reading, what is the role of library teen services? A role still exists but it is a role that requires library staff working with teens to focus not on the physical book or article but instead focus on the way to connect teens with what they need no matter where they are. Library staff need to mentor teens to help them gain skills and knowledge that connects with personal and educational interests. And, anyone working with teens needs to be able to create flexible welcoming environments that are available for teens to connect, create, collaborate."
