From School Library Journal:

This volume offers abundant useful guidance not only for reaching the target audience, but also for planning and promoting library services to teens in general. Martin and Murdock also discuss exemplary and appropriate interactions between library staff and teens, all with the intent of providing a library that functions well for LGBTQ youth. While the authors' sources include historical as well as recent professional discussions and literature, the tone is friendly and largely free of jargon. Chapters on collection building and promotion include both generous title lists and booktalk scripts; those on program planning and production include suggestions of each program's likely reception in varying communities, from the cautious to the most liberal, as well as complete lists of equipment needed to bring each idea to fruition. The audience addressed is assumed to include school as well as public librarians, and the authors spell out when distinctive differences in the roles and responsibilities of these two groups might require differences in collection or programming. All librarians should turn to this book for pertinent insight on the needs of 5 to 10 percent of the teen population and sound suggestions for providing excellent service to all local teens.—Francisca Goldsmith, Berkeley Public Library, CA

From Booklist:

This addition to the Neal-Schuman How-To-Do-It Manuals series takes on the challenge of providing library services to LGBTQ teens. In a clearly laid-out format and a highly readable style, the guide focuses on helping queer teens within the larger umbrella of providing service to all teens. Part 1 covers library service to the LGBTQ population. Understanding the queer community and identifying LGBTQ teens' informational needs, offering effective service in a safe environment, handling readers'-advisory and reference interviews, doing collection development, integrating LGBTQ themes into general programming, and assesssing and responding to the rate of change and inclusion a community will tolerate are all covered in an accessible manner. Part 2 consists of an excellent annotated bibliography as well as sample booktalks and instructions for program design. An additional source bibliography and a fine index complete a superior tool for starting or enhancing library services to a formerly neglected subset of the teen population. Welton, Ann
