This year, the iYouth Conference will highlight the incredible work of local librarians and LIS students who are making meaningful change in their communities. Whether by departing from traditional methods/ideas of librarianship or disrupting current systems that aren’t working for the communities they serve, there are incredible change-makers in our libraries working to make them better for children, youth, and teens.

Hear from local public librarians, school librarians, students, and a local author! Enjoy free food at an afternoon reception and take home advance reading copies of upcoming titles!
