Today more than a million students are being educated at home. Because of this growing trend, public librarians are increasingly being called upon to serve the needs of homeschooled students. This book provides guidance in this area, first reviewing the developmental and social needs of teens, then demonstrating how those can be met in the public library setting. It includes a wealth of ideas for adapting every facet of your library service to meet the needs of this growing population, from developing a homeschool collection and expanding services and special programs to promoting these offerings. Extensive resource lists conclude the volume.

"Instead of creating programs for teens, author and YA/technology advocate Linda Braun advocates working with teens to create library technology-related projects for them - and others. Technically Involved outlines some proven ideas to invite participation and channel teen interest in technology, giving teens an opportunity to serve their community." "Explaining how and why to integrate technology into youth participation projects, Braun illustrates how libraries can open up possibilities for teens to initiate and develop activities on their own. Specific program suggestions and appendixes provide details to involve teens at every step of the process and identify activities that meet teens' developmental needs. Filled with success stories, examples, and a wealth of potential teen-library technology programs, Technically Involved gives librarians a proactive tool for harnessing teen energy with technology for the library."--BOOK JACKET.
