Transforming Teen Services
A commons statement heard from library workers is, "We hardly have any teens in our library." What's the answer to the longstanding questions, how do we get teens to come to the library? While there may be no one-size-fits-all solution, hopefully we can share some tools and approaches to engage and provide for your teens, whether in a school or public library.
Transforming Teen Services (T3) is a series of trainings designed to help improve library services for teens across four basic content areas:
In the winter of 2020, state and local library staff from around the country were trained to implement the Transforming Teen Services trainings in their states. Kymberlee Powe, Children’s and Youth Adult Consultant at CSL DLD, and Mia Orobona, Teen Services Librarian from Darien Library, were trained to facilitate T3 in Connecticut.
Join Kym and Mia along with your teen librarian colleagues from around Connecticut, to learn, build, and develop services for and with teens that will guarantee the adolescents you support have what they need now, and for future success.
This series was developed as part of an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) grant partnership between Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) and Chief Officers of State Library Agencies (COSLA).
