Cultivating Strong Girls: Library Programming That Builds Self-Esteem and Challenges Inequality
by Nancy Evans

Nancy Evans YA librarian at Levittown Public Library will discuss her new book and present how you too can offer a "Strong Girls" program at your library.

Nancy will offer practical guidance on how to offer programming that will support the engagement, growth, and achievement of girls. The program plans are simple enough to be applied by everyone who works with girls. Presenting this type of programming allows librarians to build meaningful relationships, have a positive impact on patrons and in the community, and follow programming guidelines outlined in the Young Adult Library Services Association's report, "The Future of Library Services for and with Teens: A Call to Action." With gender bias, inequality, and low self-esteem issues still at the forefront for women and girls, public library programming that addresses these topics fills a genuine need.


Nancy’s step-by-step guidance for running a "Strong Girls School" program includes easy-to-follow instructions and tips ensure that the program can be implemented in your library as well as direction for related crafts, recommended resources, and extension activities, including peer mentoring or community service opportunities.
