Don’t Forget the Tweens

Teen services in the library cover a large age group from middle school to high school. But what about that group of preteens or tweens? My library gets a large crowd for storytime with toddlers and preschoolers. And we even get a good group for younger school age programs. But once our patrons start becoming tweens, we start to see a drop in attendance at our programs and this sometimes carries over into our teen programs. We want to create a bridge between children’s and teen programming so we program just for tweens.
