Multnomah County Library turns to ‘collaborative learning’ to lure teens in, keep them engaged

“Even in Multnomah County, where residents are known as some of the nation’s most enthusiastic library users, getting teens into the library can be a challenge. But a new effort to grasp teens’ attention – and hold it for more than a couple of hours – is showing promise. Coi Vu and her team at the library are hoping that a new focus on mentor-based programs that immerse teens in specific topics will keep them coming back for more. “We wanted to establish trust, and offer more programs that are interesting to them and get them working together,” said Vu, a youth and family programming coordinator for the library system.” (via Oregonian)
