Have you been following YALSA's National Forum on Libraries and Teens? This year-long, IMLS-funded effort brought together key stakeholders from the areas of libraries, education, technology, adolescent development and the for-profit and nonprofit sectors to explore the world of young adults and library services to this population.

The draft of the report that aims to provide direction on how libraries need to adapt and change to better meet the needs of 21st century teens is available now for public comment through October 31.

Please read the report and share your comments about what improvements we can make before the report is finalized and shared this January at Midwinter.
