Learning labs, technology centers, teen centers, makerspaces – there are no shortage of great ideas for creating spaces for teens in libraries. This session is an opportunity to learn more about what these spaces have in common, how to flexibly create spaces for teens in your library that meet a variety of budget needs and how to gain support for creating these kind of spaces in your library.
Learning Outcomes:

I was unable to make this session.  Were any files posted related to it?

Hi all -- not sure why our slides weren't posted -- I've asked presenters to get them up here shortly. Meanwhile here is my introductory slides. Thanks for asking!
