The Texas State Library and Archives Commission welcomes YALSA Continuing Education Consultant, Linda Braun as she presents the “Engaging with Teens in Your Library” workshop series for Texas librarians. This workshop is for all librarians and library staff who work with teens or are interested in bringing teens into the library.

About the workshop:

There is a shift in the ways in which library staff work with and for teens which includes a focus on: relationship building, facilitation of learning, impact and outcomes, and community engagement.  In this interactive session Linda W. Braun, YALSA’s CE consultant, will help participants review and re-envision the world of library teen services. These are services with the goal of helping teens develop the skills, knowledge, and social emotional development needed for success in life.  At the end of the session attendees will have tools and knowledge for a revitalized approach to teen services and be able to begin integrating new and expanded ideas into their communities right away.

The workshops are free of charge and will be hosted in twelve locations around the state in the months of February, April, and August. Please visit our website using the link below for more details about the workshop, to find the location nearest to you, and to sign up to attend.
