Youth-run Design and Research at the Free Library of Philadelphia, Summer 2012 | YOUmedia

Two great ideas:

  • ask teens what resources are available in their community and have them help map them (so you know what’s out there)
  • have teens help decide library space and programming. Who better to know what their interests are?

This strategy would work equally as well for adult programs: I can’t imagine a scenario in which users helping define their own environments and programs wouldn’t ensure a better chance at successful results.
