Review:

"Essential for public libraries, for library schools, and of interest to librarians in secondary schools, this 3rd edition contains a new list of excellent programs." "Another stellar collection of thirty young adult library programs... [C]lear examples of adult versus teen perceptions and resulting misinterpretations give enormous insight into adult-teen relations. These superb programs illustrate how vital libraries can be when such relations work." ..".a heartening read and a welcome reminder of how the chief ingredients of successful programs are a positive attitude and a generous expenditure of energy. A necessary purchase for all libraries that deal with young people." ..".continues the work of its predecessors in highlighting a range of creative library programs that will assist librarians in improving services to young adults."

From Booklist:

Chelton confronts the prevailing stereotype of teens as trouble in the library, and her introduction should be required reading for library administrators as well as for those who work with young people. She makes a strong case that libraries are not just for shy loners seeking refuge, but for teens in the mainstream who need a place to do homework, talk about books, learn and teach the technology, and find a safe place in the community. Her argument is supported by descriptions of 30 prizewinning programs, chosen from 99 submissions, which show teens as volunteers, employees, and mentors, as well as users of every service from computers to ESL poetry readings to cross-generational reading programs that connect school, library, and community.
