||"Access Newark" inspires Web Diaries
The Newark Public Library and Libraries for the Future (LFF), a library advocacy group, again are collaborating on a program for Newark's youth. Termed "Access Newark," it involves a team of editors (teens) helping younger reporters hone their journalistic talents and become more computer literate by creating "Web diaries." Jamie McClelland is coordinating the program for LFF.

"Access Newark" is held at the Springfield Branch on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. Since the program began a year ago, more than 100 reporters have participated, about 25 of them on a regular weekly basis.
