About YALSA's Teen Programming Database

Use this web site to find and share library programs for and with teens as well as to connect with others who plan, implement and evaluate teen programs. Programs featured on this site are those that align with the standards in YALSA's Teen Programming Guidelines. This site is funded through a sponsorship from Best Buy and a grant from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation. This site is moderated by an appointed group of YALSA member volunteers. For information about how to participate in the group, or for other questions, please contact YALSA at yalsa@ala.org.


The Young Adult Library Services Association's (YALSA) mission is to support library staff in alleviating the challenges teens face, and in putting all teens --especially those with the greatest needs-- on the path to successful and fulfilling lives. YALSA is a Division of the American Library Association.

Read about us and our mission in Associations Now and check out our report on the Future of Library Services for and with Teens: a Call to Action. You can also watch this brief video and hear from teens themselves about what libraries mean to them.
