Youth Programmers Group (YLA-Youth Librarians Association)

We are a group of youth services librarians, programmers and special events extraordinaires! We usually have a special topic of discussion, share our program successes and failures, ask and offer tips and advice, and share helpful information about paid performers.

Although most of us are from public libraries in the north and northwest suburbs, we do meet at a different library each time. We welcome you to join our always engaging conversations and meetings.

We are also known in RAILS as the Youth Librarians Association (YLA).
