The Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library are in Teen Second Life! They are working with Hopestreet Academy initially. Jean Gardner, YA Librarian took the initiative to partner with organizations including Emporia State University and Kansas Medical Center for this project. Meeting teens where they are at online and in these virtual spaces, is a great place to connect library services and teens. Look for some great work by Jean and the Kansas Community in Teen Second Life.
