NEO-RLS Webinar - What are they thinking? Teen behavior in Your Library

$24 - We work hard to plan services to attract teens, but there are times when teen behavior can make us stop to wonder what’s going on inside their head. Most people can see that teens are growing at a fast pace, but forget that their brains have more work to be done. The key to successful teen services is understanding this while creating a welcoming and understanding environment in which teens can thrive.

We work hard to plan services to attract teens, but there are times when teen behavior can make us stop to wonder what’s going on inside their head. Most people can see that teens are growing at a fast pace, but forget that their brains have more work to be done. The key to successful teen services is understanding this while creating a welcoming and understanding environment in which teens can thrive.
