Each month, through December, YALSA is sponsoring free webinars (for members and non-members) on topics related to the Teen Services Competencies for Library Staff.
The October webinar (the full video recording is available after the break) focused on the topic of Equity of Access. The three webinar facilitators discussed why and how library fines and fees need to be re-considered in order to provide equitable access to all youth.
The slides and the chat transcript from the session are also available.
The next YALSA Competencies webinar is on November 8, 2PM Eastern, and will focus on the topic of Outcomes and Assessment. Register and learn more.
