About the National Forum on Libraries & Teens

The Forum is a year-long grant funded effort that will bring together key stakeholders from the areas of libraries, education, technology, adolescent development and the for-profit and nonprofit sectors to explore the world of young adults and library services to this population, and ultimately produce a report which will provide direction on how libraries need to adapt and potentially change to better meet the needs of 21st century teens.  A draft of the report will be available in August 2013 for public comment and feedback.  The final report will be published in October 2013.Grant funding is generously provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.  For more information, please visit the Grant Proposal page.
