Youth Services Section

The purpose of the Youth Services Section is to promote improved library service to the state's children and young people by providing opportunities for its members to increase their understanding of the library needs of children and young people, their knowledge of materials and services, their awareness of current issues that affect and interest their patrons, and their working skills as facilitators of the educational process and as specialists in public libraries and schools. It also fosters cooperation between school and public libraries in the state.
