This specially priced bundle includes these YALSA professional learning bundles: "Welcome to the Library: Teen Spaces, Staff, and Services" and "Hands-On Learning and the Library."

A welcoming library environment requires space in which teen needs are met, staff that understand how to build relationships with and support a variety of teen needs, and services that focus on teen interests. This YALSA professional learning bundle helps you to put those pieces of space, staff, and services together.

This bundle includes:  

 

  • three archived YALSA webinars
  • three supplemental readings from YALSA's award winning journal, Young Adult Library Services


In this bundle, you will learn:

 

 

  • How to configure spaces that support the personal, developmental and academic needs of teens, so as to support collaborative and individualized formal and informal learning
  • How all staff can successfully interact and support teens with potentially challenging behaviors
  • How to develop services with teens that focus specifically on teen interests and needs

 


Public and school libraries are the perfect community institutions to support and provide informal learning in and out of school time. This YALSA professional learning bundle focuses on three informal learning examples that will inspire and give you what you need to get started in providing similar opportunities with your community.

This bundle includes:  

  • three archived YALSA webinars
  • four supplemental readings from YALSA's award winning journal, Young Adult Library Services

  • How coding programs help teens gain skills while at the same time support college career readiness and build community connections
  • How connecting STEM and interning experiences gives teens the chance to learn 21st century skills and have a voice in that learning
  • How helping teens learn about their own passions and interests gives them a chance to gain career skills and get jobs in their very own community
