Teens Transform!


Libraries are increasingly finding a need to reach out to the young adult community. Libraries are transforming from places that provide resources into places that provide community. The young adult community requires a place free from judgment where they can be themselves, and the libraries are transforming into a place where they can safely gather for fun, education, and companionship.

Library staff who work with teens, whether in a public library setting or a high school setting, have a passion for what they do. But they can’t do it alone! How are you transforming your teens, your library, and your community? How can we engage teens to transform their lives?
