The people shaping the future of youth services are creating the future of libraries. This online youth services course brings together experts to discuss the most pressing issues for school and youth services librarians today.

This 3-week online course will tackle hot topics such as graphic novel collections and LGBTQIA+ programming and services, while also teaching you innovative ways to co-design programs with youth, involve their caretakers and communities, and connect goals to learning initiatives. You will also learn tenets of conflict resolution and trauma-informed practices that will help you better manage teen behavioral challenges in your libraries. 

Designed for school and public youth services librarians, this course will leave you with practical ideas for how to engage youth in your library in new and authentic ways.  

You’ll complete assignments over 3+ weeks in an interactive online classroom environment with personal coaching from an expert in the field. In addition, you’ll have access to our foundational bonus content—rich supporting materials you can explore at your own pace, including a series of webinars from Library Journal and School Library Journal contributors, readings, activities, and videos.
