Interesting post, Luke. Teenagers seem to be avid readers yet libraries are still having trouble engaging them. You have already raised some good points about why this might be the case. Treating┬áthem with respect and a friendly attitude is really important because I think teenagers often don’t get treated with the respect the deserve (not necessarily by librarians but by society in general). Librarians are often in the older age demographic so the generation gap might also play a role but like you said this is not insurmountable.
