Another one of our new Interest Groups, Library Services for Incarcerated Youth is working on some exciting projects:

– Robbie Reasoner is organizing presenters for a series of webinars on libraries in juvenile detention facilities.

– Amy Cheney, Angela Craig, and Kathleen Houlihan are preparing for a presentation through YALSA at ALA 2012.

– We’ve scheduled a virtual group meeting through ASCLA using GoToMeeting.  The meeting is this week—January 11th from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. and hopefully will be available as an archived meeting for those who can’t attend at that time.

– Camden Tadhg is working diligently on the website for libraries serving incarcerated youth.

If these projects sound exciting to you, please join our Interest Group.
