We Empower Teens
Judy Macaluso is the Teen Services Coordinator for Ocean County Library, aka MPOW. Judy is incredibly dedicated and driven about teen services, the importance of teens in the community, and the need for libraries to reach out to teens and to empower them. Just one example of her success: in 2002, OCL had two teen librarians; now there are twelve.
Judy has an article that discusses her vision for teens and libraries and how she made it happen at OCL. It's ""We Empower Teens" @ Ocean County Library (pdf) in the August 2006 issue of VOYA. Check out the photo on the fourth page; I'm the one on the left.
