Robyn Lupa is the head of Children's Information Services at the Arvada Libary in Jefferson County, CO.

"The topic is certainly timely, and the book's treatment gives librarians handy tools to start connecting with wired teens." --Booklist

"For young adult librarians looking for new ways to reach out to their clientele, this title offers a multitude of ideas through networking sites." --ARBAonline

"This practical yet fascinating professional reference answers the question, 'What is social networking?' This book is a must for those getting started with social networking applications. Highly recommended." --Library Media Connection

"Colorado-based librarian Lupa provides background on social networking websites to introduce the nine contributions collected here on how libraries can employ those sites in work with teens. Chapters address the following topics: a teen perspective on social networking, online fads among teens, practical applications for libraries online, development of a social networking program for libraries, creative programming ideas, homework help widgets, professionalism within web-based networking endeavors, and teen advocacy. Case studies demonstrate successful use of the web in library outreach to teens." --Reference & Research Book News

"A wide variety of ideas for programs and activities are shared that will entice teens to gather at the public library. Young adult librarians searching for ways to bring young people to the public library should consider purchasing this activity-filled title." --Catholic Library World
