Title: Coalition-building: Maybe tomorrow? Maybe today!
Author(s): Tyson, Christy
Subject(s): Youth services in libraries Outreach Public libraries
Abstract: I do manage to find time to interact with school personnel, usually through monthly lunches, and to visit most of the youth-serving agencies in the city at least once a year. However, I am all too aware that there is much more that should be done if we are to develop a program that supports the needs and interests of Spokane's young people as fully as they deserve. I also know that even on the most hectic of days I have choices. I would like to think that those choices are based on the library's goals and objectives. However, I know that there are other factors at work for me, and, I suspect, for others in youth services as well. I don't find much value in harangues or breast-beating. Instead, I would like to step back and explore how coalition-building is supported or resisted by the profession.
