Back in January YALSA released its report, “The Future of Library Services for and with Teens: a Call to Action.” The report provides recommendations for ways libraries can evolve in order to better meet the needs of 21st century teens. YALSA would like to hear from the library community and beyond how this report has impacted you and your institution so far. What changes have you made in regards to serving teens or new things have you tried? What have been your successes and challenges up to now? What ideas did the report spark as you read it? Please take a moment to fill out a brief online form to tell us about what’s been going on with you and your institution since the report came out. Some of the information we gather will be featured in upcoming issues of YALS.
Also, don’t forget that you can access free resources to help you and your organization learn more about some of the key issues in the report, like connected learning, cultural competence, and more via YALSA’s web site. We’ll be adding even more resources there over the next few weeks, so check back often.
