Creation of Youth Services Roundtable (AkLA)
The Alaska Library Association does not have a roundtable devoted to Youth Services. To create a new roundtable, a petition with the signatures of at least 7 AkLA members needs to be submitted to the AkLA Executive Council. When you sign, please indicate if you are an AkLA member in the comments section. Thanks
The Youth Services Roundtable will be organized within the Alaska Library Association. Youth Services encompasses library services to children, teens, and adults who care for youth. The Roundtable would be entitled to a voting representative on the Executive Council of AkLA.
- To foster communication and cooperation among Youth Services librarians.
- To advance a high standard for the Youth Services profession in libraries statewide.
- To promote the development of continuing education opportunities to aid in the growth of professional skills and knowledge.
- To provide input to AkLA regarding programs, activities, and initiatives.
