Youth Services are Invading the Midwinter Uncommons!

It’s happening, folks. The youth services revolution has begun.


This coming weekend at ALA Midwinter in Chicago, not one, not two, but THREE groups of youth services advocates will be taking over the Networking Uncommons to facilitate sharing and learning among the youth services folks in attendance. It’s bound to be fun, probably a bit irreverent, and definitely informative, so make room in your schedule for any (or all!) of these gems.


Friday, January 30

1:00-2:00 p.m. – Guerrilla Storytime with Storytime Underground


Saturday, January 31

1:00-2:00 p.m. – Guerrilla Storytime with Storytime Underground

2:00-2:30 p.m. – Storytime Petting Zoo with Flannel Friday

2:30-3:30 p.m. – YA Smackdown

3:30-4:30 p.m. – Special Needs & Inclusive Services for Kids, Teens, & Families


Sunday, February 1

12:00-1:00 p.m. – Guerrilla Storytime with Storytime Underground

2:00-3:00 p.m. – YA Smackdown


Remember, the guerrilla methodology of tapping into participants’  knowledge means that each of these individual events, even those with the same name or target age range, will be different. You could attend each and every one of these sessions and learn a whole toolbox worth of new tips and skills. So go ahead–become a repeat attender. You’ll get to meet great folks, too.


And don’t forget–if you can only stop by between meetings, you’re more than welcome to bring your lunch into the Uncommons so you can participate AND avoid low blood sugar. We care.
