I spent all day today at a retreat for Teen Services at my library. Since it is a large system, we make new discoveries each time we are together. Social networking tools such as blogs, Flickr, and wiki’s keep us communicating and sharing. Presentations on gaming, pop culture (I should probably turn on my tv once in awhile for more right answers), book talks, programs, hands on activities, and of course sharing YALSA schwag, were some of the things we did.

What do other libraries do to work together as a system to serve teens better and celebrate the way that you are serving them now? Does your system encourage Teen serving librarians (and other teen serving staff) to be YALSA members?
