Cost: Included with full conference registration.
Working with teens is incredibly rewarding, but not all library staff approach teen encounters with delight. Tasked with getting their district on the same page when it came to serving teen patrons, three librarians created a crash-course on understanding teen behavior and best service practices for all library staff. This session will equip you with a roadmap to implement teen focused staff training at your library, including ways to scale for libraries of any size and focus. Plus you’ll get a micro-training on everything from adolescent neuroscience to behavioral changes that you can repurpose for your library’s specific needs.
