Workshop for Southern Ontario Library Service – Spring 2013
Teens can be the most elusive library users and teen services often operate with limited staff and resources, presenting unique challenges and opportunities for libraries. Learn strategies for developing successful teen programs and tackling the biggest obstacle of all … getting teens into the library. Gain a better understanding of teens as library users and examine the role brain development plays in shaping teen behaviour. Explore the range of programming options available from book clubs and writer’s workshops to gaming and teen tech programs. Discover why teen services provides an ideal platform to experiment and pilot new ideas and approaches, using technology to enhance and reinvent traditional programs and services.
