Youth Services Managers from libraries in the south and western suburbs meet every other month to discuss management topics in the company of a supportive peer network. Meetings are held in the south and west suburbs, but all RAILS YS Managers are welcome.
Formerly known as Near West South Side (NWSS) YS Managers group.
Youth Services Managers from RAILS public libraries meet every other month to discuss relevant topics. NYM meetings are located in north-east Illinois, but all Youth Services Managers are welcome to attend.
The teen/young adult librarians from the former DuPage Library System (DLS) libraries meet every three months to discuss programming, young adult novels and issues related to teen services. We meet at various Illinois libraries in the former DLS area. Any interested young adult librarians are welcome to attend.

This group is for teen librarians and those that work with teens. We provide opportunities for sharing ideas, concerns, and success stories with respect to all areas of service to young adults, and have recently begun collaborating to bring our teen patrons some great larger scale programming (like the inter-library Hunger Games) . We meet 4 times per year in person at various libraries in the Illinois (former) Metropolitan Library System in Chicago-land. Feel free to join our google group if you would like more information.
