Library services to young adults should aspire to two fundamental objectives: to engage young people through meaningful and appealing responses to their recreational and informational needs, while supporting good developmental outcomes. How are those of us who work in libraries, who may see teens only sporadically and for short periods, supposed to work effectively with them? --From the Introduction

How do we best reach our teen patrons? Young adult librarians and others who serve them constantly strive to better understand this often-unpredictable audience.

In this insightful guide, Jennifer Burek Pierce provides a fascinating look at today s teen through the lens of neurological, psychological and educational research. Putting this research in the context of library services, she challenges librarians to question their assumptions about teen patrons and provide new answers based on research finding. Much like early literacy research informed library services to youngest patrons, this provocative book outlines what others who work with adolescents have learned from their professional activities and how that knowledge can encourage new priorities and partnerships in youth services.

Use this research to:
· Help sort out the facts from fiction about adolescent brain development and sexuality
· Equip staff to understand and sensitively interact with teens
· Foster understanding about teens, technology, and multitasking
· Incorporate teen friendly services and activities into the library

About the Author:

Jennifer Burek Pierce is currently assistant professor in the School of Library and Information Science at the University of Iowa. She has worked in youth services both in Arlington County Public Library (Virginia) and in the Pikes Peak Library District in Colorado. Most recently, she authored a chapter on young adults information seeking about sexual and reproductive health for Youth Information-Seeking Behavior: Theories, Models, and Issues, Vol. 2 (Chelton and Cool, eds.). She is a regular contributor to American Libraries.

From Booklist:

The intent of this insightful guide is to provide a look at today’s teens through the perspective of neurological, psychological, and educational research. The author takes us through five basic myths, from teens being all but adults to understanding twenty-first-century teens by being aware of what the entertainment industry markets to them. The result is a useful primer on how best to work with young adults and teens as library patrons and the impact that outside forces have upon their choices. Each of the six chapters ends with a further-reading list of Web sites, periodicals, and books as well as detailed notes. An excellent resource for current and future young adult librarians. --Carol Sue Harless
