Review:

"Whether your program and offerings for young adults are thriving, need a little reviving, or are nonexistent, this books contains a wealth of useful information...The toolkit is a fabulous resource for those who are starting a teen program or need a boost introducing new programs or ideas...Any library serving teens should have this book in its collection, and it is an excellent resource to share with all staff members to make the library a welcoming and relevant place for teens." --Reference and User Services Quarterly, Vol. 49, Issue 3

"...a wealth of ideas that touch on all facets of programming for the young adult." --Catholic Library World, March 2010

...contains just about everything anyone would want to know in the early twenty-first century about being an excellent young adult librarian....The book is extremely well laid out...one of the most outstanding features of the book is an extensive glossary of both terms and people's names...it is recommended for all young adult librarians or all librarians who want to be young adult librarians or teachers who want to function as young adult librarians. --ARBA Online, March 2010

...a wealth of ideas that touch on all facets of programming for the young adult. --Catholic Library World, March 2010

"The big pink bible of young adult (YA) services is back and better than ever...It is hard to imagine any library that wants to do a better job of understanding, serving, and embracing teens not having this book, even if they have every other edition. It is invaluable beyond the few words that this review has space to include. The CD-ROM tool kit alone makes this resource worth its purchase...Highly recommended for new and seasoned librarians alike." --YALS, Winter 2010

...a wealth of ideas that touch on all facets of programming for the young adult. --Catholic Library World, March 2010

From Booklist:

The most recent edition of this title now includes information on new technologies, graphic novels, gaming, social networking, and other topics not covered before. Although the authors state that it is for both the school and public librarian, its true focus is the public library. The book includes practical suggestions, personal experiences, and best practices in chapters covering customer service, information literacy, collections, outreach, programming, and more. Each chapter ends with a concluding summary, sources cited, and further reading. Additional information is imparted in figures, an extensive glossary, and results of surveys and focus groups. The accompanying “CD-ROM Tool Kit” contains forms, lesson plans, programming ideas, etc., which are indicated by an icon in the text and listed on the inside front cover. This title is invaluable to any librarian who comes in contact with teen patrons. --Shelley Glantz
