CHICAGO — The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) is excited to unveil a brand-new publication titled, “Putting Teens First in Library Services: A Road Map.”

The publication, edited by Linda W. Braun and Shannon Peterson, with contributions from front-line library staff, managers, and researchers, helps library staff take the recommendations in YALSA’s The Future of Library Services for and With Teens: A Call to Action report and turn them into practical actions they can take to enhance teen services in their library.

From novice to expert, readers will explore the knowledge and information needed to design a relevant and sustainable strategy in teen services to improve the lives of the teens that they serve, and provide more value to their community.

Putting Teens First in Library Services: A Road Map is on sale now in the ALA store for $40. ALA members receive a 10% discount. Get your copy today.

Limited quantities of the title are available for free to graduate school faculty who wish to evaluate the work for potential inclusion as a text in their course work. Contact Anna Lam at alam@ala.org for information.
