The Power of Youth Services

Transforming Public Library Impact


Miami-Dade Public Library System – Main Branch
101 Flagler Street
Miami, FL 33130

 
Presented by Library Journal and School Library Journal, the 2018 Public Library Think Tank will convene public library leaders and directors, youth services and young adult librarians, with other leading thinkers on the role of youth services, literacy, and learning trends. This two-day event will focus on the power of youth services—from tots to teens—inform healthy communities, help kids become readers and learners, and help them develop the skills that will serve them well throughout their lives.

Intimately connected to community needs, youth services departments, large and small, form a dynamic and increasingly relevant force that continues to transform the impact of public libraries. Think Tank participants will share strategies on programming, management, community engagement, and getting the word out.

Outcomes:
Attendees will learn about innovative programs and services from a series of insightful presentations and collaborative sessions, gain insight into superb youth services initiatives and their impact, and take home ideas on how to think strategically about leading with youth services to enhance library services. Attendees will leave with practical, applicable strategies with which to make a lasting impact in their libraries and library systems.
