Act Now for Libraries & Youth

Libraries have a strong track record of providing key services that meet the unique needs of teens.  They give young people a safe place to go after school, connect teens to resources to help them succeed in their studies, and make sure teens build important computer and digital skills they'll need for careers. Check out this infographic to get the details.

May 6th, 2014, is National Library Legislative Day--a day set aside by the American Library Association to remind Congress about the vital role libraries play in their communities, and the importance of federal funding to support those efforts.  With more than 7,000 teens dropping out of high school per day, now is not the time to cut back on the very institutions that empower young people to learn and succeed.  Show your support for libraries and the work they do for America's youth!  Check out these ten easy ways that you can support libraries and youth.

Still not convinced that teens need libraries?  Check out this brief video and hear from the teens themselves about what libraries mean to them.
