This year’s theme is Our Voice, Our Time<https://mediasource.actonservice.com/acton/ct/10574/s-2813-2005/Bct/l-10d6/l-10d6:4bf/ct1_1/1?sid=TV2%3A175nyBULj>. Often thought of as quiet places, libraries are in fact hotbeds of passionate communication, dialogue, and activity. They continue to be a vital part of a community, at a time when community is as important as it is difficult to grasp.
Young adult fiction has always been about finding and raising your voice, and like Greta Thunberg, Emma González, and other young activists, real teenagers around the world are making themselves heard, at home and abroad.
This year, many teens will vote for the first time, and even the youngest have powerful perspectives worth sharing. As many miss out on common milestones such as prom, graduation, and campus visits, it’s especially important to listen to their needs.
Meanwhile, educators and librarians have adapted to unprecedented demands, and #OwnVoices creators increasingly share stories that have long been silenced.
The conference’s author panels and library programming sessions will help you support and engage teens during this complex moment and beyond.
We are anticipating an unprecedented number of library professionals to attend this year's SLJteen Live!, so you may find the environment or live sessions become full during the day.
But fear not! All sessions and author chats will be available for viewing on-demand within an hour of the initial broadcast, and the entire event will be available on-demand for three months.


SLJteen Live! provides a lot of good networking opportunities and makes it accessible to libraries of all sizes! It's fun and helps you meet some really cool authors. Plus, I learn about so many good books every time.

Upon completion of a session, attendees will receive a certificate of completion that will include the number of education hours. Attendees may submit that certificate to their governing continuing education body to request CE credits. If you would like to verify in advance of registering that your governing body will accept our certificate for credits, you may be able to submit the program’s agenda to them for pre-approval.
