Share Your Teen Program & Activity Ideas
YALSA is creating a 365 Days of YA calendar that will feature quick and easy ideas for busy librarians and library workers to use to serve teens.  Share yours by emailing them to 365daysofya at gmail.com<mailto:365daysofya at gmail.com> by no later than April 15th.  (Remember, the more people share their ideas  better resource this calendar will be when you need a new idea!)

Join the Discussion about Learning Environments for Teens
YALSA is hosting a virtual town hall on Tues. April 16th from 2-3pm, eastern about teen learning environments.  Any interested person is welcome to attend, especially those from the areas of libraries, education, technology, adolescent development and the for-profit and nonprofit sectors.  This is part of a year-long project in which YALSA will ultimately produce a report which will provide direction for how libraries can adapt to better meet the needs of 21st century teens.  Grant funding is generously provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.  To learn more, visit www.ala.org/yaforum<http://www.ala.org/yaforum>, or search #yalsaforum on Twitter.
