A professional development guide for Teen Librarians, Teen Liaisons, and anyone else fortunate enough to work with Teens in the Library.

Teen Services Shared Resources

Teen Services Shared Resources (TSSR) are available to Teen Services Librarians and Liaisons at the San Antonio Public Library. Whether you have teens who are excited to try virtual reality for the first time or you simply need to borrow some additional craft supplies, these resources are available for you to requested as needed for teen activities at your library location, as well as for offsite events such as an outreach visit.

Some resources live at the Teen Library @ Central while others float among the branches; some resources are sent via binmail while others will require you to pickup/dropoff.

Please note: these resources are only available to be requested by Teen Services Librarians and Liaisons at the San Antonio Public Library.
