Teens!

Today I had the pleasure of attending a meeting with the Boulder Public Library Teen Advisory Board.  One of the things I realized during the meeting is how far Public Libraries have come in the past 10 years or so with their commitment to the Teens in our communities. The very fact that I was sitting in a meeting room chatting with this vibrant group of Teens talking about libraries, podcasts and how to make the library a better place for them is quite wonderful. Salute to BTAB!

    We should chat a bit more about this, I’ve been trying to start a student advisory group at CU’s library and there is much fear and suspicion from about half of the administration (the other half is gung-ho). However, the public service people are extremely enthusiastic about the idea. Perhaps sharing some of BPL’s experience could help soothe their concerns of “what if it sets up unrealistic desires and expectations?”
