Jenine began her work with youth and communities when she was, herself, a pre-teen (now termed “tween”). Throughout the following 23 years, it became increasingly clear that Jenine was called to serve youth through education and mentorship, these all blended together in librarianship. Once an opportunity arose to share her research and ideas on boys and books, reluctant readers, and innovative, inexpensive programs for youth and teens, she jumped at it. After earning her MLIS in 2005, she soon began presenting at ALA Annual and regional Library Association conferences, serving on YALSA’s Quick Picks for Reluctant Readers Committee, and teaching eCourses for YALSA on “Boys and Books: Encouraging Early Teen and Tween Boys to Read.” Soon, Jenine was nationally recognized for her work with teens in libraries and participated in the ALA’s Emerging Leaders Institute as a YALSA Sponsored Candidate as well as receiving VOYA’s Most Valuable Teen Program Award, 2007 for the Teen Alternative Fashion Show.
