Delivering Effective Teen Services During the Pandemic Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Thursday, May 27, 2021, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific

As library doors remain closed or only partially open, the need to provide great teen services remains. Fortunately, by adapting existing programs and services, you can continue reaching teens and serving them effectively.

In this workshop, Jennifer Velásquez, Teen Services Coordinator for the San Antonio Public Library, will provide you with practical steps for adapting teen services to the current situation. You’ll learn new and different ways to reach your teen population without the need for dramatic adjustments to resources or staff time. You’ll also learn how the changes you make now can enhance the services you provide even after the pandemic. 

By participating in this workshop, you will:

  • Gain an understanding of how services are unique during the pandemic and how your approach to teens can diverge from your approach to other demographics.
  • Understand practices and protocols for establishing and maintaining digital connections with teens in your community as individuals.
  • Be able to take practical steps to adapt physical library practices to the digital space, understanding where you can and cannot create analogous programs and services. 
  • Gain strategies for fostering teen participation in and ownership of the library’s virtual online spaces.
  • Be immersed in the discussion around new expectations for post-pandemic teen service.
  • Understand several techniques to reach out to and support schools and other teen serving agencies.
