Youth Services for All and Translating Business Reference.
Seamless Youth Services for Every Age and Stage (ISBN: 978-0838919255, 96 pp., $39.99), by Karis Loop, explains that offering transitional programming can help children move to the next stage in their library experience. It outlines both major and minor transitional periods ranging from birth to adulthood and illustrates how libraries can nurture the three main skills (how to self-select books, how to participate in programs, and how to use the library's resources) required for children as they grow. This book also demonstrates ways transitional programming can be incorporated into a library's initiatives and shares adaptable ideas for programming, attendance, and participation.
