(statistics are from the Kids Count Data Center)
Teens need libraries now more than ever, yet what they need is changing. Therefore, we need to change how we plan, deliver and evaluate library services for and with teens, including who we help teens build literacy skills and develop a love of reading. Please read this report: The Future of Library Services for and with Teens: A Call to Action and think about how you can begin implementing the recommendations called for in the report in order to help more teens succeed in school and be ready for college, careers and life.
