Teens, Libraries, and Social Networking: What Librarians Need to Know

Synopsis

Many of today's teens spend hours each day on Facebook, MySpace, and other social networking sites. What does this mean for library services to young adults? How can librarians harness these popular sites in the service of library programs and education overall?

Excerpt

We firmly believe that teens should be provided with equal access to library services and that those services should be equal to those offered to other library customers. This series supports that belief. We are very excited about Teens, Libraries, and Social Networking: What Librarians Need to Know as the newest addition to our series. Denise Agosto and June Abbas have written and edited a comprehensive survey of this topic, which is so very important and popular with teens. You will find this information, supported by the authors’ own research and the expertise of those working in the field, indispensable as you tackle the issues in your library.

We are proud of our association with Libraries Unlimited/ABC-CLIO, which continues to prove itself as the premier publisher of books to help library staff serve teens. This series has succeeded because our authors know the needs of those library employees who work with young adults. Without exception, they have written useful and practical handbooks for library staff.

We hope that you will find this book, as well as our entire series, informative, providing you with valuable ideas as you serve teens, and that this work will further inspire you to do great things to make teens . . .
