The YALSA Legislative Committee is pleased to announce the March Advocate of the Month: Anna Hartmann
Anna Hartmann has been the teen services librarian at the Council Bluffs Public Library for the last three years. The position was newly created when she came on and she has made every effort to provide the best service to her teen patrons. This includes the designing and overseeing of the new Teen Central space at the library (with input from teen patrons), designing programs aimed directly at teen interests, revising both her practices and programs to better fit the needs of her patrons, and generally being the best librarian around. She advocates for the importance of the library in teens’ lives by making sure they have a space in the library where they will be respected and appreciated. Please see the Council Bluffs Library website at http://www.cbpl.lib.ia.us/teens/ for more info.
If you know someone like Anna’ who deserves recognition for their advocacy work with teens and libraries, please consider nominating them for YALSA’s Advocate of the Month at: http://yalsa.ala.org/forms/advocate.php
Thank you on behalf of the YALSA Legislative Committee.
