To: alacro-l at ala.org

As part of the year-long National Forum on Libraries and Teens effort,
YALSA has released a report, *“The Future of Library Services for and with
Teens: A Call to Action”* providing direction on how libraries need to
adapt and change to meet the needs of 21st century teens. Visit
www.ala.org/yaforum/project-report to download the report and executive
summary today!   Join the discussion on Twitter with the hashtag

The report is a call to action for the library community.  It provides
recommendations on how libraries must address challenges and re-envision
their teen services in order to meet the needs of their individual
communities and to collectively ensure that the nation’s 40+ million teens
develop the skills they need to be productive citizens.  By acting on this
call, the library community can work within their own local communities to
create the kind of spaces, services, and opportunities that today’s teens
need in order to succeed in school and in life.
