Working with at-risk teens, including those who are homeless, incarcerated, or in foster care, is a rewarding but often challenging endeavor, especially with a growing number of at-risk teens in both urban and rural areas of the country. Based on best practices and personal experiences from many leaders in the field today, including authors Angela Craig and Chantell L. McDowell, this book shows how libraries and communities can work together to find new ways to serve this population. Packed with accessible and affordable programming ideas, ready-to-use templates, and techniques, this addition to the Teens @ the Library series Demonstrates why serving at-risk teens is important, and offers advice for gaining institutional support for outreach services Shows how to understand the needs of at-risk teens, including a discussion of the factors that place teens at risk Examines diversity within the at-risk population Suggests ways to partner with youth facilities, with real-world examples of working with non-library personnel and caregivers Provides guidance for collection and resource development Gives examples of technology-based programs to promote literacy and connectedness

In the current economy, libraries are losing funding at the very moment when the numbers of teens at-risk have been growing. This book compiles suggestions and experiences from librarians who work with this population. Chapters include understanding their needs as well as how to engage them through library programs. Featuring interviews with library staff as well as teens themselves, the book will give librarians insight into the needs of at-risk teens as well as relevant tips. Suggestions are presented to engage not just the teens themselves but also children of teen parents. One appendix offers forms libraries can use to evaluate programs and needs; another features a list of organizations that serve at-risk teens, which is helpful for forming partnerships with related groups. A valuable resource for librarians in urban or rural areas who serve this population.-Melissa Stock, Arapahoe Library District, Englewood, CO (c) Copyright 2013.
