Turn The Page

Turn the Page: Extending Library Services to Empower Youth is a long-running partnership between students and faculty at GSLIS, community members and youth, and the Champaign County Juvenile Detention Center.  This partnership was begun through Youth Community Informatics, another IMLS funded project.  It now continues to grow and expand through Mix IT Up!.

Turn the Page ensures that relevant, meaningful, and personalized library services are available to youth in the Juvenile Detention Center.  It also promotes general community awareness of issues related to literacy, youth detention, marginalized populations, and the school-to-prison pipeline.  More about Turn the Page is available at the project’s blog – http://elseyjdc.wordpress.com/.
