About the Author:

Kimberly Bolan is a library consultant based in Indianapolis, IN. Over the past 20 years, she has worked in and with public and school libraries of all sizes. Her work has focused on facilities planning and design, strategic planning, teen and youth services, technology services, and customer service and marketing. She earned her MLS at Syracuse University s School of Information Studies. A popular speaker at state and national library conferences, Bolan was named a 2004 Mover and Shaker by Library Journal.

From School Library Journal:

An essential guide for any library planning a teen-space project, this second edition presents valuable information. After an introductory chapter on teens and their needs within a library, all aspects of teen areas are explained. From the analysis and planning to design and decoration, Bolan outlines the steps to take and the pitfalls to avoid. Plentiful photographs and sidebars from librarians add to the depth of knowledge. Long-term promotion of the teen space is well covered, and a chapter on teen-friendly policies, new to this edition, gives readers a macro view of the topic. Extensive appendixes and a companion Web site mean that any library will have the tools to create an ideal space. Those that already own the first edition of Bolan's work should consider purchasing this edition as well, thanks to the new information and the updated chapters. This book truly is a guide to step-by-step library makeovers.—Melissa Rabey, Frederick County Public Libraries, Frederick, MD
