Host a VIP this Summer!
Libraries can invite their members of Congress into their library to see first-hand all the great ways libraries create opportunities for teens to keep learning over the summer.  They could also schedule a meeting with the VIPs at their local office.  YALSA's Legislation Committee has created some great tips and resources to help libraries participate in “District Days.”  http://wikis.ala.org/yalsa/index.php/District_Days

Makerspaces & DIY Programs
