Program Description

This presentation will focus on different ways a high school librarian has found to engage teenagers.

What can you expect?

  • We will hear directly from teenagers via mixed media about what programs have been a hit or miss and why
  • You will leave with a toolbox of ideas that you can implement immediately that are low cost and little effort
  • You will hopefully have a foundational understanding of how to grow this target demographic's participation in the library moving forward
