Summary "Urban Teens in the Library is the perfect solution for the concerns and uncertainty many librarians face when supporting this group of patrons and students. From a team of experts who have researched the information-seeking habits and preferences of urban teens to build better and more effective school and public library programs, this book will show readers: the importance of moving beyond stereotypes and revamping library services; the value of street lit and social networking; and how a library website can meet the information needs of teens."--Jacket.
