Description: In this article, Nicole Jenks May discusses the work she and her group of colleagues from different religious backgrounds do to help library staff better serve teens who identify as conservative. The team defines conservative as, “teens who prefer not to read about certain kinds of things—sex, drug use, and teens who are perceived as being bad influences—in their recreational reading.”  The article offers tips for serving conservative teens, advice on  planing inclusive displays,  and highlights recommended titles.
