Abstract:

"Although teen advisory groups flourish in many libraries, no how-to guide has ever been published for the librarians who run them. At last, the activities and policies of actual groups in school and public libraries - a teen advisory board (TAB) or young adult advisory council (YAAC) or even "YaYas" - are described in detail by the advisor of one of the longest-running teen advisory groups in the United States, the twenty-seven-year-old YAAC at City of Mesa Library in Arizona. Diane Tuccillo covers the wide landscape of teen advisory groups from funding to bylaws, starting a new group to rejuvenating an old one, classic projects to unique roles, and community involvement to voting on adult library boards. Vivid profiles of successful teen groups, organized in public and school library sections, tell each group's story, along with teen feedback. Sample mission statements, applications, membership cards, parent permission forms, publicity flyers, and newsletters can be borrowed or adapted." "Library directors, school administrators, library educators, and librarians who work directly with teens in school and public libraries will be unable to resist such compelling testaments to the value of library teen advisory groups."--BOOK JACKET.
