Hello!  I just received a brochure about a young adult literature training offered the Bureau of Education & Research in Portland, OR on November 19.  While most of their trainings are for teachers, they usually offer a couple a year that are appropriate for public librarians too.  You can find out more about the training at: http://www.ber.org/CourseInfo.cfm?seid=BT00F1-PTO.  This is not an endorsement, please review the training description to make sure it is right for you.
