Public Libraries as Partners in Youth Development: Lessons and Voices from the Field
Yohalem, Nicole; Pittman, Karen
Forum for Youth Investment
"Public Libraries as Partners in Youth Development: Lessons and Voices from the Field," published by the Forum in partnership with the Urban Libraries Council, captures key challenges and lessons learned from an innovative, four-year initiative sponsored by the Wallace-Reader's Digest Funds that awarded six million dollars to nine library systems. The initiative provided an unprecedented opportunity for libraries to work collaboratively with youth and community partners to strengthen their understanding of and commitment to youth development. We hope the report helps put libraries on the radar screens of the range of systems, organizations and individuals across the allied youth fields as well as stakeholders in neighborhoods across the country that share an interest in partnering with and supporting young people. (Contains 22 footnotes, 4 figures and 1 table.)
