National Teen Space Guidelines for Public Libraries

Brand new from YALSA: National Teen Space Guidelines for Public Libraries.

Download them for free at: http://www.ala.org/yalsa/guidelines/teenspaces.  This is a tool for evaluating a public library’s overall level of success in providing physical and virtual space dedicated to teens, aged 12-18. Potential users of these national guidelines include library administrators, library trustees, teen services librarians, community members and job-seekers hoping to assess a library’s commitment to teen services. Not every element of the guidelines may apply to every public library situation, but the guidelines can serve as a place to begin the conversation about what constitutes excellent public library space for teens.
