I’ve recently been fortunate to give a variety of presentations about teens, music, and what that relationship means for your library. As Kelly mentioned in the last YALSA post, I’ll be live broadcasting an online stream for the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County‘s teen retreat. For anyone interested in tuning in (see Kelly’s post for details), here are the presentation materials I’ll be using.

Here’s a video featuring teens at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh ruminating on music, media, and more. Some of the things they discussed will be touched on during the talk.


I also created a presentation, which you can view through SlideShare.

Please also feel free to download and distribute my handout: Finding a Way In: Teens, Music, and You.

I’m a little nervous (I’ve never really talked to a room full of people I couldn’t see), but I’m hoping it will be a worthwhile view. See you then!

3 Thoughts on “Finding a Way In: Teens, Music, and You

  1. this is going to be great!!!

  2. Joseph, this is wonderful! You’ve definitely convinced me.

  3. For those that stuck with the live stream (we switched from video/audio just to audio b/c of our bandwidth issues-thank you. We will be posting soon a ‘how-to’ with using ustream. Joseph was/is amazing. Even though there were bandwidth issues w/ustream-I’m still a believer of using the live stream and I’ll post some pointers that might help you have a successful program w/it at your library.
