Welcome to the Young Adult Services Section

The Young Adult Services Section meets from September to April/May. Meetings provide opportunities for Young Adult/Teen Services librarians, or library staff who work with teens to discuss issues relevant to Teen Services, which include programming ideas, solutions to problems, teen advocacy and more!

The YA Services Section also strives to prepare and present current, quality programming pertaining to teen services at the annual NJLA Conference and Youth Services Forum. Furthermore, the section reads and evaluates teen books for inclusion on the Garden State Teen Book Awards ballot, prepares and distributes the ballot, gathers and tallies votes cast by New Jersey teen readers, and honors the winners at the Garden State Luncheon at the annual NJLA Conference. 

We welcome you to join the section! Bring your ideas and suggestions. Current meeting dates are available by going to the right hand side of the page: YA Section Quicktabs/About/Meeting Schedule.
