All youth-serving library staff in public and school libraries


Youth services librarians are all about getting the right resources for their patrons, but our range is often limited when seeking resources for ourselves. Librarianship shares many commonalities with other fields in the recreation, education, and even business sectors. Join us as we identify these fields and key resources within them, learn how to apply those ideas to programs and services within the library, and explore how we can use these similarities to build relationships with potential community partners.

Learning Objectives:

After participating in this webinar library staff will be able to:

  • Identify fields outside of librarianship whose knowledge enhances our practice as youth library staff, and key resources in those fields
  • Apply knowledge and resources from other fields to best serve youth in the library and the community
  • Explain the ways library staff skills and knowledge can benefit youth-serving partners in your community
