Involve and engage the teens who use your library by starting or revitalizing a Junior Friends group. Junior Friends allow for the growth of leadership skills, responsibility, activism, and increased positive interaction w/peers and the community at large. We’ll also examine socially conscious programming for teens, which addresses diversity and the need to empower our youth regardless of their backgrounds. These programs can be replicated and adapted by teen librarians across the country.
Presenter: Syntychia Kendrick-Samuel, Uniondale Public Library, Uniondale, NY.
