Three colleagues and I spoke at the Illinois Library Association’s annual conference this month. Our presentation, “12 to 18: Meeting the Distinct Needs of the Early and Late Teen Years,” was about why and how to differentiate services to younger teens/middle schoolers and older teens/high schoolers in the public library. I had such a great time hearing what other library professionals had to say on a subject close to my heart.

I also created a list of selected titles and authors with special middle school appeal, which you can view here: Middle School Favorite Titles
