Teens get a voice in how Dakota County libraries can serve them

Teens get a voice in how Dakota County libraries can serve them
At a time when teen interest in the libraries is surging -- Dakota County saw its young adult circulation numbers rise 11 percent this year, even when excluding the new Robert Trail Library -- the county library system launched the Rosemount group and two others in August. The goal: to build even more interest among teens by giving them a voice in decisions about book selection, programming and even interior design.

Nothing new--but good publicity

There's nothing new about a public library having a Teen Advisory Group (I'd guess there are hundreds, quite possibly thousands of such groups)--but what's nice here is a good newspaper story coming out of it. Effective advocacy/marketing, without a heavy hand.
