This book offers a comprehensive guide to working with teen parents and their children, providing practical program ideas for successful school and public library program development, implementation, and evaluation.

Research has shown that children born to teen parents are more likely to begin kindergarten with lower levels of school readiness, evidenced by lower math and reading scores as well as poorer language, communication, and physical and social skills. The good news is that library staff can help teen parents learn how to give their children the early learning experiences necessary for healthy growth and development.

Teen parents and their children represent an underserved, high-need population in many communities. Libraries have the potential to significantly influence the quality of life for teen parent families by providing free access to information and resources, developing specific programs, and serving as a safe, public learning environment. Serving Teen Parents: From Literacy to Life Skills helps library staff support teen parents as their children's first teachers, positively affecting two generations at once.

The authors explain how to successfully communicate with this group and build upon their competencies and strengths. They offer best practices, professional anecdotes, and step-by-step direction on connecting with teen parents, collaborating with community partners, locating funding options, and implementing successful programs. This invaluable guide is the most comprehensive resource currently available that directly addresses the needs of librarians serving the teen-parent demographic.
