    Greetings fellow Councilors!

    Youth Council Caucus Sunday, June 26, 2022, 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM Location: Marriott Marquis, Liberty Ballroom Open to any interested in Youth Services. You do not need to be a Youth Council Caucus member to attend.

    The Youth Council Caucus is open to any councilor or ALA member who represents youth issues or wants to support youth on Council. I invite you to join the Youth Council Caucus community on ALA Connect to stay informed.  

    Elizabeth Niebeker is the YALSA Division Councilor, Diana Chen is the AASL Division Councilor, and I am serving as ALSC Division Councilor.

    The three youth division councilors rotate leadership at Youth Council Caucus.

    • ALSC will lead Midwinter 2022. YALSA takes minutes.
    • YALSA will lead Midwinter 2023. AASL takes minutes
    • AASL will lead Annual 2024. ALSC takes minutes.

    If you have an item to add to the agenda, please contact me via email at or via phone at 785-218-4576. 

    Current Youth Council Caucus agenda items include:

    • Council's TAG updates from the division leaders to discuss how information from that meeting could affect the youth divisions
    • ALA Executive Board candidates potential questions to present during the Candidates Forum
    • Continued support of School Librarians and Media Specialists as they struggle through censorship attacks.

    Council documents that have been submitted for the 2022 ALA Annual Council meetings will soon be available on ALA Connect

    And on the ALA website


     Looking forward to seeing everyone soon!
