A Year of Programs for Teens
Planning teen programming is a lot of work, so why offer programs that teens don't want? Teens need especially exciting and dynamic programs to encourage them to use the library and its resources. In A Year of Programs for Teens, two young adult specialists take teen services to a new level with step-by-step instructions for planning teen programs. Each chapter covers one month of the year and includes four to five program ideas appropriate to the season, as well as suggestions for games, passive programs, and book displays. All programs included in this collection have been tested in real libraries with live teens and offer program-specific details about supplies, preparation time, setup, and marketing tactics plus scalable program ideas for different age ranges and library budgets.
