Please join us at an interactive session with Linda W. Braun, Young Adult Library Services Association’s (YALSA) professional development consultant to learn more about the new focus in teen services on relationship building, facilitation of learning, impact and outcomes, and community engagement. These are services with the goal of helping teens develop the skills, knowledge, and social emotional development needed for success in life. You will leave with tools and knowledge to go back and revitalize services and programs in your community right away.
Two dates and locations:
Wednesday, August 29 at the Doubletree Pittsburgh North
Thursday, August 30 Harrisburg PaTTAN
Registration: 8:30 am to 9:00 am
Workshop: 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
Lunch will be provided, but bring your own morning beverage
CE Credit: 6 CE hours
Target Audience: All librarians and library staff who work with teens or are interested in bringing teens to your library.
Due to a maximum of 50 participants at each of the two locations, I ask that libraries only register one person.
