YALSA's new "Teen Services Competencies for Library Staff" (http://www.ala.org/yalsa/guidelines/yacompetencies) outlines the skills all library staff need to effectively serve teens - from interaction with teens and families to learning environments and experiences, community and family engagement, cultural competency, and outcomes and assessment. This interactive session will help library staff more effectively use and communicate these competencies in their libraries, and provide feedback to YALSA on support libraries need to implement them.
