Young Adult Services Forum (YASF)

Creating and providing professional development opportunities and materials for library staff members working with young adult populations.






The #WeWereHere Project aims to create a repository of teen voices in the historic time of 2020. 
If you are a teen, we want to hear from you how this unprecedented year of great social upheaval and pandemic has affected you. If you are a librarian, you can learn how to help and join your library to the project here. If you are just an interested person, please spread this project, use the hashtag, and amplify youth voices locally. Now is the time to hear and more importantly listen to young people.
