There are so many parts of this book that I can easily see using in the future. There is also a CD in the back for creating documents like Internet Use policies for teens. I especially liked the idea of creating a teen web committee within a library, where teens choose what goes on the teen portal, as well as regularly contributing to book blogs and programming web events. I'd put what page I'm reading currently, but we've jumped around the edition.

This book has some great insights into serving teens in libraries, as well as getting the staff on board with this patron demographic. The writing occassionally veered into purple prose and at other times felt like the authors assumed the readers harbored a secret dislike for teens. Overall, it provides a good overview of services to teens.

This was a text book I needed to read for one of my graduate classes. It was clear, concise and very helpful for my Young Adult literature and programming course. A great book for anyone who works with teens in a library.

This book has great answers for all your teen library services questions! For example:
P 256 - 258 - If only one teen shows up, do you cancel the program?
