This book discusses library services to Hispanic/Latino teens, highlighting best practices, examining relevant and responsive services and programs, and reframing existing approaches to serving this segment of the population.

One in every six people in the United Sates is Hispanic, with approximately 17.2 members of this population under the age of 18. Hispanics accounted for more than half the growth in this nation over the last decade. These numbers underscore the importance of providing relevant and responsive library services to this sizable and significant demographic group.

Latino teens within Generation Y or Generation Z are bilingual and bicultural. As such, these teenagers have varied characteristics that present unique conditions and challenges for librarians. Serving Latino Teens not only explains why providing targeted services to Latino teens is so critical, but it also shows librarians and teen providers exactly how to best reach this demographic.
