Lyttle, School of Information Sciences alum and head of the Public Services at the Madison (Ohio) Public Library, and Walsh, Emerging Services and Technologies librarian at the same library, offer support, plans, strategies, and programming for the tween set. The first section is devoted to defining exactly what a tween is (defined by the authors as kids from nine to fourteen), providing information on the development and psychological aspects of tween-dom, as well as current writing on tweens and additional resources. The remaining seven sections tackle issues such as raising support and advocating for tween services, creating tween spaces, assessing tween material, and programing and marketing, among others. The chapters focusing on tween materials include guidelines for selection and bibliographies (divided by genre and including audio and visual resources), making them particularly useful for librarians looking for tween books in their current collection. An index is included. [End Page 477]
