Teen Vogue is a magazine that focuses on quality writing in both its features and investigative journalism stories. It is available on a variety of online platforms, including social media. Focusing on celebrity news, politics, fashion, beauty, wellness, lifestyle, and entertainment, there is an article for almost anyone.
Teen Vogue is dedicated to informing teens about the world, growing beyond only being a lifestyle magazine. Some of the most hard-hitting articles can be found in Teen Vogue, bringing back investigative journalism that is akin to Ida Tarbell, Upton Sinclair, and Murray Marder. It does not forget that life includes things that bring pleasure, however. The magazine continues to include stories that were Vogue's foundation—fashion, celebrity news, and entertainment. It is an all-encompassing read that is approachable to teens. Its online-only format may be a challenge to more traditional magazine readers, but a subscription that is preloaded on a library tablet in the teen space, for example, would make it as easy access as a paper copy.
Whether politics or make-up techniques, Teen Vogue has something for everyone.
Teen Vogue is the destination for the next generation of influencers. We educate, enlighten, and empower young people, arming them with all they need to lead stylish and informed lives. Teen Vogue, launched in February 2003, delivers 27 million-plus monthly impressions through a combination of TeenVogue.com, multiple social media platforms, and a robust video channel.
BRAND MISSION Teen Vogue is for the young and unapologetic. We create groundbreaking narratives that are authentic and inclusive for young people hungry for representation and gripping opinions. We aim to disrupt the conversation by educating, enlightening and empowering the next generation with every step we take.
"My mission for Teen Vogue is to be as inclusive and representative as possible, to champion and celebrate all kinds of diversity, to be a guide and resource for young people who want to change the world for the better, and to remember to have fun and find joy while doing it."

Nevada County Library Selection Policy
Selection of materials is based upon a number of criteria that include:
The Library selects materials in accordance with the guidelines stated by the American Library Association in its Library Bill of Rights, and Freedom to Read Statement and Freedom to View Statements.
The Library supports diversity of expression and views in its collection in an attempt to provide patrons with a foundation for making informed decisions and formulating personal opinions. The Library does not exclude items because of the race, nationality, social, political, or religious views of the authors. The presence of controversial materials in the collection does not represent the Library’s endorsement of the opinions expressed therein. Although some materials selected may contain language and/or illustrations that may be offensive to some patrons, the Library cannot undertake the task of pleasing all individuals by censoring such items.
Active Listening Skills
Staff should listen calmly to the patron’s concerns without judgement or commentary. They should acknowledge the public’s right to challenge materials and help the patron find an alternative item that will fit their needs.
Nevada County Library Reconsideration form
Any citizen may challenge materials. If the citizen chooses to submit a written Request for Reconsideration of Library Materials, Library staff will collect reviews and accumulate data on how the material conforms to the selection policy. An ad hoc review committee consisting of the Library Director, Branch Manager, one other librarian, and a citizen appointed at the discretion of the Library Director will review the material, judge whether it conforms to the Selection Policy and submit its report in writing to the Nevada County Board of Supervisors. Concerned parties will be notified of the final decision in writing.
