Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Librarians are always looking for good ideas for summer programs, and Kan's book has plenty--and for that hard-to-please age group, YAs. The book is divided by subject: type of program (general incentive or thematic); participation opportunities (volunteers, teen advisory board, etc.); programs for teens with special needs. A solid introduction explains how to connect with YAs. Each program is thoroughly described and includes graphics of such things as giveaways and posters. Some of the programs give insights into difficulties other libraries might run up against; more of that information would have been useful. Still, Kan has done an excellent job gathering the information, organizing it, and presenting it in a way that will be most useful to other librarians. Among the most interesting programs are "Enter the Reading Zone," a program with sf overtones that offered both books and T-shirts that participants could use as entries into local attractions; a computer program that taught teens how to surf the Web; and a program for junior librarians. Ilene Cooper


"With this book in hand you have a resource of ready ideas and successful prototypes to engage [teens] in library activities and to encourage them to build a lifelong love of reading."
