Serving teens in libraries has never been more exciting — or challenging! Join in a best practices discussion on Second Life, Thursday, January 25, 5pm slt (PST)at the Open Air Auditorium, InfoIsland I, 130, 98, 272. Library consultant Beth Gallaway / Cerulean Vesperia about how normal brain development impacts teen behavior, Library consultant Linda Braun / Lucy Theeuwes will focus on the literacy aspects of teen behaviors and how some of what teens do that might seem strange is actually fantastic in terms of literacy, and Teen Librarian, Kelly Czarnecki / BlueWings Hayek will talk about ‘creating spaces of their own’-between home and school that can foster building developmental assets and healthy relationships for teens.

While the discussion will take place on the grid for adults in Second Life, it will be streamed in to Teen Second Life on Eye4You Alliance Island. To set up a free account, go here or for more information.
