Why Outreach? We love guaranteed audiences. Going to youth serving organizations is awesome. Bringing them back to the library is GREAT.

We reach the teens who wouldnt necessarily have these opportunities otherwise. Experts encourage change. Teens are an age group every year is

different, and reevaluation is key. Experts expand our knowledge, Expand our ability to teach STEAM concepts, and Enable the library to be flexible with our

programming. Evaluate Your Awesome Collaboration: TAYAPYYPYTT Teens want to come back.

Adults/Kids want to do your programs. You are reaching teens you didnt reach before. Administration can promote your collaboration as an extension of mission and vision. Programming flexes and changes as your Teens needs

change. You are within your budget. You are expanding your librarys skill set. Partners wish to work with you again. You want to work with your partners again. TEENS want to work with your partners.
