 If you haven't had a chance, please post a quick missive letting us
know you, your library, your group size, teens ages, how long you've
been advising, etc.

Hi, I'm complying with your request Steve although I'm an "other": an
author with a new issue-oriented book coming out in September for teens on
political and civic activism and... I'm speaking at ALA on July 10th (!) at
the Joint (AASL, YALSA, ALSC) legislative meeting about teen adovcacy and
how libraries can make themselves invaluable to their youth clients and in
turn, can turn those teens into advocates for the very serious issues -from
funding, bonds, staffing, space, censorship - facing libraries today

In the short time of this list, many of you have already given very good
examples of why you are valued by your teens and I hope you'll let me
"lurk" a little as I prepare this presentation.
