Teen Spaces: The Step-by-Step Library Makeover, Second Edition
Bolan, Kimberly
ALA Editions
When writing the first edition of "Teen Spaces" in 2002, YA expert Bolan was challenged to find excellent examples. Now, teen spaces abound and interest continues to grow. With a strategic use of web-based technologies--from the author's website to a Flickr account--this new edition showcases success stories as it reaches out to attract a global community of teen librarians committed to meeting the needs of young adults. Revising the first practical guide to creating inviting spaces for teens in the library, Bolan reveals what it takes for your makeover to go as smoothly as possible. You'll find: (1) Step-by-step instructions and easy-to-use templates; (2) The latest information on teen spaces policies; (3) New ways to involve teens in the space-renovation process; (4) Updated tools, worksheets, instructions, and vendor information; (5) Inspiring illustrations and discussions of what other libraries have achieved; (6) Best practices for developing teen spaces. Chapters of this book include: (1) Understanding Teens and Their Space; (2) Ask and Analyze; (3) Plan and Propose; (4) Design and Decorate; (5) Long-Term Promotion; and (6) Policy and Practice. Appended are: (1) Templates; (2) Worksheets; (3) Resources; (4) Vendor List; and (5) Resource Libraries. An index is also included.
