About the Author:

As a family therapist, Margaret Auguste frequently utilized books and stories as a therapeutic device. After witnessing the positive affects that reading brought to her clients, she earned her MLS degree at Indiana University in 1999, and began her library career as a library technology instructor and as a public services and technology librarian in New Jersey. She currently works as a school librarian at a middle school in Somerset, New Jersey. Auguste shares her experiences and knowledge of libraries through writing. She has written for Teacher Librarian magazine, where she shared her experience transitioning from one career into another as an alternate route librarian. She has written for FACES: People, Places and Cultures about the plight of Haiti 's libraries. She contributed to VOYA magazine about her experience collaborating with other librarians to bring authors into her school. She is a book reviewer for School Library Journal and Multicultural Review magazines. Auguste is a leader in bringing technology information and skills to the community. As a software trainer, she traveled around the country and Canada teaching librarians and teachers how to implement and integrate technology into their workplaces. She taught Internet searching skills, website evaluation, and website design to the community. She also collaborated with local law enforcement to develop Internet safety information classes for parents, to educate them about how to keep their children safe when using the Internet. Auguste has also brought the issues of diversity, culture, and race to the forefront through essays written for the anthologies Hair Power Skin Revolution (Troubador, 2010) and Maternal Pedagogies: In and Outside of the Classroom (Demeter, 2011), in which she writes about the psychological and social impact of skin color in America, and the historical and sociological impact of African American teachers on their students. An American Libraries Association 1998 Spectrum Scholarship winner, she is a member of The Moth├‚┬Čerhood Initiative for Research and Community Involvement, a member of the New Jersey Association of School Librarians, and a member of the New Jersey Librarians Association.

Review:

VOYA s Guide to Intellectual Freedom for Teens by Margaret Auguste is one of the best and insightful books on the topic ever produced, not only because of her experience as a practitioner on the front lines, but also because of her background as a family therapist. The topical divisions of the book are just brilliant! This is a book for all of those like me, who still get infuriated by librarians who say, when exasperated by teens, I didn't become a librarian to be a social worker! Auguste shows us just how valuable insights from another field can be to our own. I love this book. --Mary K Chelton
