Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

In this clear and informative title, Braun encourages librarians to involve teens in technology-related activities and projects that will benefit them and others. She responds to questions regarding participation, benefits to patrons and libraries, and training. The author provides numerous suggestions for activities (book-oriented blogs, fan sites, online tutorials, e-mail newsletters, etc.), and templates for specific programs. For each program outlined, she answers the who, what, where, and why of youth involvement and includes a thorough responsibility checklist. Chapters also deal with overcoming obstacles to achieve success. Appendixes include a list of the National Youth Participation Guidelines (YALSA), a "Youth Participation Technology Checklist," samples of volunteer and self-assessment forms, and suggestions for software. This excellent volume is a must for libraries with teen groups, and a consideration for those that don't have them.

"It's funny that we think of libraries as quiet demure places where we are shushed by dusty, bun-balancing, bespectacled women. The truth is libraries are raucous clubhouses for free speech, controversy and community. Librarians have stood up to the Patriot Act, sat down with noisy toddlers and reached out to illiterate adults. Libraries can never be shushed." -- Comedian and author Paula Poundstone, national spokesperson for Friends of Libraries U.S.A. (FOLUSA) And Libraries are now a technical treasure trove, but how best to mine the gems? This book is a very specific instruction manual explaining how and why to integrate technology into teen participation projects. Invite teen participation, guide them in projects, and empower them to serve the community. The book is full of specific steps successfully used on projects including: online storytelling, tutoring, literacy programs, email newsletters, cross-generational programs, and more. Inspirational, you'll want to act by volunteering at your library, involving teens you know, and helping our communities."
