By Karyn M. Peterson

“The reason why my programming has become so successful is because I have given a voice to my teens and have made them an integral part of [it],” says Library Journal  Mover & Shaker Lindsey Tomsu, new youth librarian and teen club advisor extraordinaire at La Vista Public Library (NE).


In this fourth of a dozen planned interviews with the youth services librarians named as Mover & Shakers this year, Tomsu shares with SLJ her top teen book picks, her dealings with Dewey, her inspirations and passions, why teens matter so much, and her views on the future of youth services.
