About this Group

👐 Anyone can view all content in the group, but only people who join it can post to it. Anyone can join to participate.

Purpose: Provides a venue for directing questions and concerns towards current and retired directors for open discussion. Possible topics could include leadership, library school education, major issues facing directors, preparing for an administrative role, positives and negatives of directing a library, and the thought processes of directors in day-to-day operations. The goal is to provide a group where directors and the curious alike can equally gain from the back and forth discussions, and educate people in the roles and experiences of directors.

This group is part of Core's Leadership and Management Section.

Question for Public Library Administrators - Teen Spaces

  • 1.  Question for Public Library Administrators - Teen Spaces

    Posted May 12, 2011 11:01 AM


    I am working with a team of librarians on YALSA's Guidelines for Public
    Libraries Task Force. The charge of our group is to develop guidelines for
    both physical and virtual teen spaces. We are preparing the document with a
    broad audience in mind to include Library Directors, Board Members, Trustees.
    To this end, we are interested in input / suggestions from Public Library
    administrators as to what kind of information you would deem important in
    considering the allocation of funds for teen only spaces. Research? Outcomes?
    Community Assessment Data?

    We appreciate any information or ideas you may offer. Thanks for your time.
