Idea Playground: Youth Services Unconference

July 10, 2014
August 7 at Dominican University

Keynote presented by Monica Harris, Deputy Director at the Schaumburg Township District Library and adjunct instructor for the School of Library and Information Science at San Jose State University

Innovation is not new to the library world.  It's concept that librarians have always embraced and welcomed.  On August 7, Innovation in Youth Services will be examined and debated at ILA's first ever Youth Services Unconference.

Libraries are in a transformative period that is both invigorating and frightening.  Many of us have instituted innovative solutions to better serve our customer's needs.  The Youth Services Unconference is an opportunity for you to share and gather big ideas from your peers and perhaps develop a few solutions to problems.  Come innovate with us!

 Sponsored by the ILA Youth Services Forum, ILA Young Adult Services Forum, and Dominican
