Dip a toe in the world of young adult library services
This book is a great introduction to young adult services. Despite being rife with an irritating number of typos and grammatical mistakes, it covers just about every conceivable aspect of YA services in libraries: getting the young adults in the door; reaching out to the young adults in your service area; booktalks; young adult interests and needs by age and developmental level; why YA programming is so important; overcoming and dealing with antagonism among library staff; programming ideas; building a YA collection; the importance and challenges of technology usage among young adults; and more! Written by some of the most respected, and experienced, YA librarians in the field, Connecting Young Adults and Libraries is a must-read for any librarian working with young adults today.Was this review helpful?
