{August 17, 2006}   MySpace for Parents

Jesse Vieau, a colleague in Teen Services, and I have been teaching a workshop entitled, “MySpace for Parents.” In thinking about developing the class we really just wanted to inform, educate and hopefully demystify MySpace for parents. The two classes that we offered have been rather successful with about 30 in total attendance. We’ve also had a fair amount of local media coverage which is good, because it reminds the community that the library is here for change. We are here to help them with cultural, informational and educational change.

We will be offering about 10 more seesions of this workshop around the library system in the months of September, October and November. Attached you will find a brochure that has been developed for the class.

If you haven’t offered something like this in your library or system you should consider it. Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions about it. You don’t have to be and expert. You just have to be willing to learn and develop some understanding.


Fantastic job on this series, and on the media interviews, particularly the panel discussion on DOPA. Glad you’re with the PLCMC!

Hi there,

I am a Reference Librarian at a large urban public library. I manage our computer class offerings, and I am interested in hosting one on MySpace for parents. I would like to talk with you offline about your classes and experience with parents.
