How do we get teens to read, come to the library, or even do their homework?  Join the Teen Services Interest Group so we can all share our ideas, programs, book recommendations, etc., to make this happen together.

Interest Group Facilitator:  Kendall McCurley

My name is Kendall McCurley and I am the Young Adult Librarian at the Clay County Public Library System. I have worked in academic and public libraries and with both adults and young adults. I started as the Teen Librarian at the Fleming Island Branch in January of 2019 and have now moved to a position that allows me to work with teens at all of our branches. I am in charge of programming for tweens, teens, and new adults at our library system and I assist with collection development in our YA departments. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in History from Auburn University in 2015 and my Master’s degree in Information Science from Florida State University in 2018.

I think teens are the most underappreciated demographic that the library serves. I am passionate about encouraging libraries to create spaces and collections that best serve them.
