YSS wants YOU to know!

In the second* in a series of educational webinars we are coordinating with library systems for youth librarians in the state, Teen Services is the focus.  These free CE opportunities feature WLA YSS members who are also amazing youth services librarians sharing tips, programs and more to help all of us improve services.  
Additional upcoming webinars this year include one on school age services, one on partnerships and one on the secrets of great youth collection development (no, it’s not all about buying new books!).  We also have four more webinars waiting in the wings! YSS is the proud sponsor of these webinars and hope you not only benefit from them but consider becoming a member of WLA and the YSS section where change for youth in WI happens!
