Urban teens travel in packs much like their suburban counterparts, but are more likely to come from differing backgrounds. This diverse group, unified and yet divided, has a great deal competing for their time and attention. Providing a historical perspective for teen services as well as suggesting progressive ideas for the future and methods for evaluating success, Serving Urban Teens identifies areas of public librarianship that can be specifically improved upon to more effectively serve our growing urban teen population. Brehm-Heeger examines physical space models, collection development trends, programming ideas, and incorporating teens as volunteers and staff members. Most importantly, she stresses that we must all work together to meet the unique needs of urban teens, working with them to a build community.
