  • About the Author

Here is the first “one-stop-shopping” manual for librarians working in young adult services who would like to make their work--hiring, training, coordinating, planning, budgeting--both more effective, and more enjoyable. Renee J. Vaillancourt, feature editor of Public Libraries magazine, shows you how to apply tried-and-true business theories and management principles to transform your hectic and overwhelming work in YA services into a fun, successful, and gratifying career. Vaillancourt applies classic management principles to handle every aspect of a YA librarian’s workday--including managing events, running youth participation groups, raising funds, spending wisely, prioritizing projects, managing over-enthused patrons, organizing workloads, and especially, conquering stress. In this, the latest entry in Neal-Schuman’s popular teens @ the library series, you will have the keys to improving your library’s YA services and the know-how to take your own career to the next level.
