Major socioeconomic changes and technological advances have affected American youth and library service. These standards explain how the library in a juvenile correctional facility must support, broaden, and strengthen the facility's total program of treatment and education.

These standards are appropriate for these types of facilities:

  • long-term facilities that generally hold juveniles who have been adjudicated and committed to custody (some of whom may be serving brief terms of commitment). Usually these institutions offer strong academic and vocational programs designed for extended periods of time.
  • Short-term facilities that generally hold juveniles awaiting (sometimes for several months) adjudication or other disposition.
