Creative Youth Programming at Public Libraries

Join us for an informal discussion with Ben Anderson, the teen librarian at the Monroe branch of the Sno-Isle library system. Ben has been a medical librarian, children’s librarian, combined youth-services librarian and teen librarian. He found his passion working with at-risk teens in the Monroe Library and has orchestrated several non-traditional library programs including a rave and after-hours laser tag. Learn how these crazy ideas were inspired, developed and executed. Snacks will be provided. Bring questions!
