Youth Engagement: Information, Culture and Community Faculty

Youth Engagement is about having a deep understanding of the literature, concerns and programs that appeal to age groups from children to older youth.

Most public libraries have staff that work specifically with children and youth. While some libraries will have staff that specialize in different age groups (young children, school-age, and teens), other libraries have staff that serve youth from birth to eighteen.

Staff working in these areas are often expected to have a deep understanding of the literature and other resources that are geared towards youth. They are also often expected to develop and deliver programs, inside and outside of the library, that provide a variety of learning opportunities for the different age groups. Our staff at the School of Information will guide you in how best to reach this audience.
