  • The way teens want to use space.. Count the infractions….
  • Hagerstown, Maryland
  • TAB/ TAG developed guidelines for the space… done publicly… Have that policy meeting on the service floor at a peak time… doesn’t supersede patron code of conduct
  • smallest
  • biggest
  • An adult did not decorate this space. This is their space you just work there.
  • Which is great while it is happening – but what about teens that missed the day it was being worked on??
  • Sometimes you get to go home… put your space work
  • Make and take…
  • Celebrating the collection – teen plan it… whether they are readers or not. inclusion
  • If you just said to your self – that’s the one I’m going to do… step back. And no that READ poster might not swing it… again relelvance is key here… and
  • If you have volunteers – or teens interested in helping out – part of helping can be showcases the collection

    5. 5. Programming Policy SAPL - Teen Program Development Guidelines: •Teen Library Program development will NOT be passive – with the Library in the role of “creator” and the teen patron in the role of “attendee.” •Teen Library Programming will NOT originate from: •the interests of library personnel •library staffs’ or community members’ perception of the interests of teens •library staffs’ or adult community members’ presumption of what is “good” for teens. Teen Library Programming WILL originate from: •Teens with library staff assuming the role of facilitator and guide during the process •Teens will actively participate in program development, implementation and play a role in the decision making process.

    12. 12. Things you can do today: How do teens want to useobserve space? Do they use the space designated for them? Or do they choose another space in the library? What do teens want to do in the space?
