Geeks as guides: youth engagement in public libraries [video]
ALIA New Librarians' Symposium 9 (NLS9), 5-7 July 2019 Adelaide: collaborate deviate innovate
Recording (MP4 audiovisual) of session on public libraries and young people.
Some public libraries struggle to get young people into their space, others are inundated with high-energy, high-need and sometimes disruptive teens. This session will cover the journey of one remote library and the trials and triumphs experienced as they fight to change public perception and the lives of troubled indigenous young people in one of Australia’s most unique towns.
