What does YALSA mean to you?
When I first started library school, I knew that I wanted to work with youth, teens in particular. YALSA was my go-to resource as I studied library and teen services. As I’ve advanced in my career, YALSA continues to be an important resource for me: learning and networking opportunities, leadership development, and as a training tool for my staff.The creativity, passion, and dedication of YALSA members is a great source of inspiration for me.
What are your hopes for the future of teen services?
I hope that we can successfully advocate and provide support so all libraries are able to develop and deliver unique services for and with teens and that ALL teens’ needs and interests are represented in library services.
