There is a new Young Adult Librarian at the Glen Ellyn Public Library, Allison Harrell.  She is in the process of developing programs for the young adults of Glen Ellyn.  I had the chance to sit in on her first Teen Advisory meeting.  This being the first meeting, a call went out to students in grades 7-12 who had an interest in the library’s service to teens!  Members would bring fresh new thoughts and opinions to the table and offer program ideas, make suggestions about Young Adult collection, and most importantly, help to actively implement these creative ideas! ….and most, most importantly, Pizza was served.  This took place in the new Teen Scene Room.  There was low attendance but great ideas presented.  Information on programs run in the past was looked at and updated by the teens present.  This program has great potential.
