YA Smackdown: Holla Your Teen Savvy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

From successes in teen programming to flash readers’ advisory to humorous “What Would You Do?” scenarios, let’s crowdsource our brilliant ways of working with teens. We will follow the YA Smackdown format created by Teen Services Underground, which consists of participants drawing a random question from a cup and answering in front of the group. Whether you are a long-time teen services librarian or you are starting to get interested in the field, we want you to share your wisdom with us! Participation will be strongly encouraged.
