Issues to discuss at Library Legislative Day

Posted by Beth Yoke:
A small delegation from YALSA will be attending National Library Legislative Day May 1 & 2 in Washington DC. What do you feel are key issues relating to libraries and teens that we need to discuss with legislators? Any feedback you could provide would be appreciated.
Thanks, Beth

  1. I feel that legislatively, a key issue is providing funding for more public community and entertainment infrastructure that teens can utilize in late evenings. I feel that this is an important step in providing teen-focused librarians with further avenues for promoting to and connecting with teens beyond the traditional school options.
