Nine to Nineteen: Youth in Museums and Libraries: A Practitioner’s Guide

April 1st, 2008 | RESEARCH

This guide grew out of the Institute of Museum and Library Services’ Museums and Libraries Engaging America’s Youth initiative and draws on the wide body of research and knowledge from the fields of youth development and informal learning, as well as from the rich experience of museum and library professionals and volunteers. The specific goals of the initiative are: to examine what works, to share best practices to encourage effective programming to build bridges with policy makers.
