Albion District Library
- An accidental children’s librarian?
- Feeling overwhelmed when it comes to youth services?
- A librarian of many hats handling multiple roles in the library?
- Lost amid all the talk of ‘early literacy’ and ‘lexile scores’?
Never fear, we have the solution for you!
Join us for a full-day immersive workshop focusing on youth services in the public library. We’ll cover all the bases and you will leave the day with the building blocks and connections to create a successful youth department.
