Overview: Services for youth (of all ages) is in a constant state of change from forces both within our libraries and outside the profession. While books and programming will always be a cornerstone of what we do, the all-new Youth Services Conference will focus on the other aspects of library services for children and teens. You’ll take a closer look at how to best serve patrons from birth through high school and explore innovative ideas that you can implement back at your library.
