The Young Adult Services Symposium is open to everyone, not just YALSA members.

Programs will cover the entire spectrum of topics related to providing services for and with young adults.  Session content is focused around key issues in YALSA’s recent report.

The 2020 symposium theme is: Biggest Little Spaces: How Libraries Serve the Expanding Worlds of Teens.

Through inclusive programming, diverse collections, outreach, advocacy, and partnerships, libraries offer safe spaces for teens. Do your programs and services meet the complex and diverse needs of contemporary young adults? Does your teen section or YA collection need a refresh? Have you found partnerships to encourage and advocate for young adults? Join YALSA for our 10th Symposium virtually as we discuss the literature, activities, and the biggest little places needed to serve and inspire today’s teens.​
