Implementing innovative teen services in libraries requires that library staff learn and adapt with their communities. Using core concepts outlined in YALSA’s The Future of Library Services for and With Teens: A Call to Action report as a spring-board, this publication takes a deep dive into the theory and practice behind meaningful, cutting-edge teen programs and services with contributions from diverse leaders in the field including front-line practitioners, managers, and researchers. From novice to expert, readers will explore the knowledge and information that they need in order to design a relevant and sustainable strategy, which will improve the lives of the teens that they serve.
