Alumna Micaela Brittsan Recognized for Successful Teen Library Program


Micaela BrittsanMicaela Brittsan, a fall 2006 San José State University School of Information graduate, was recently recognized by the Coronado Eagle & Journal for her well-received teen library program at the Coronado Public Library in California. Since taking over the program in 2008, Brittsan says she has both followed in the footsteps of her predecessor and listened actively to the ten-member teen advisory board. “They help me come up with activities and give me ideas for the reading programs and book clubs,” says Brittsan. “It’s a way for them to have a direct impact on what’s happening.”

The teen program meets weekly for activities such as board games, movie viewings, author visits, and more. There are also book clubs for middle- and high-schoolers, as well as a popular summer reading program that raised $1000 for charity last year.

“We’ve got a good thing going here,” says Brittsan. “This program works very well for the community.”
