Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Honnold, along with 40 contributors, has put together a terrific guide for relating to teens and drawing them into the library with technology-based programs. From gaming to MySpace to audiobooks and video-production contests, the book has some great Library 2.0 ideas for services and events that these digital natives who are now our patrons would respond to and enjoy. The guide includes not only recreational but educational programs, such as new ways to get teens interested in research skills and database tutorials, along with some ideas for reaching special audiences, such as ESL students. The clear and detailed descriptions of programs that have worked for other libraries will give librarians some new ideas about ways to connect with teen patrons.--Donaldson, Christy Copyright 2007 Booklist"
