Youth Engagement: Information, Culture and Community

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.

For further information on this area, please consult the advising sheet for the Youth Engagement pathway.

Students interested in school librarianship, should consult advising materials for the K12 School Library Media programs.
