SI Students Contribute to New Book– Multicultural Programs for Tweens and Teens by Dr. Linda Alexander and Dr. Nahyun Kwon

Multicultural Programs for Tweens and TeensEdited by Linda B. Alexander and Nahyun Kwon for YALSA. Chicago: ALA Editions, 2010.

“In the spirit of scholarship and multicultural community, Multicultural Programs for Tweens and Teens is a compilation of library and information science graduate student inclusion and awareness project assignments. The contributors have developed the programs based upon the objectives and requirements of a graduate course in “Multicultural Materials for Young Adults and Children” for prospective librarians and school media specialists, developed by one of the authors. Borrowed from the cultures introduced within the course, the inclusion and awareness programs in this book are the finished product of students’ own particular interest in a particular culture studied.”–Introduction.


Multicultural Programs for Tweens and Teens is a one-stop resource that encourages children and young adults to explore different cultures. Dozens of flexible programming ideas allow you to

  • Choose a program specific to your scheduling, budget, or age group requirements
  • Create an event that reflects a specific culture
  • Recommend further resources

Following the practical programs laid out here, young adult librarians in public libraries, school librarians, and adult and young adult services staff can easily explore many diverse cultures.
