Why teen services?
I’ve always related well to teens, perhaps because I can still get in touch with the feelings, etc. that I had when I was a teen. My high school has a reunion every 5 years & my high school friends have a 3 day Slumber party every April. I taught high school off and on between 1963 & 1991: History & English/Literature. I love teen literature & have created a teen lit database from which I can create lists of different genres & on different subjects.
