Promoting books and reading is one of your most important roles, but reaching teens and inspiring them to read can be a challenge, especially now, when teens have so many other commitments and interests. This guide will inspire you to build your book knowledge and combine it with marketing savvy to bring teens together with books and reading. Drawing upon recent research on teens and libraries, the author offers practical guidelines and a wealth of exciting ideas for environmental reading promotions (collection building, designing the space, creating publicity materials and developing the web site), as well as interactive promotions (communication with teens, readers advisory, booktalking, partnering with other organizations, and book-related activities and events). Based on the author's experience and the experience of others who work with teens, the book provides librarians and other educators with a simple, handy, and upbeat guide. Grades 6-12.

Editorial Reviews

"[A] wonderful resource for librarians, whether they are of the YA variety or just hoping to interact more positively with teens and encourage them to use libraries. This book is indeed passionate on the topic of service to yough and there is an abundance of information and many ideas between its covers for attracting and keeping youth in the library. Mahood writes a highly readable book that may be studied carefully from cover-to-cover or immediate guidance about specific topics, chapters or sections may be sought using the detailed table of contents and index. Mahood's book is thorough in its attention to detail and advice on how to make your library, whether big or small, welcoming and attractive to young adults. Whether your library has its own YA Librarian or only one Librarian, A Passion for Print can guide you in jump-starting services and programming for YAs or reinvigorating what is already in place."-Partnership: the Canadian Journal of Library and Information Practice and Research
