Toronto Public Library has published its first evidence-based strategy guiding services for youth ages 13-24. This session will describe the strategy’s content, development and early implementation, delving into TPL’’s youth services structure and service areas while providing examples.

Staff development, spaces, collections, technology, programming, outreach, partnerships, volunteering and employment will be covered in a session that is both visionary and practical. Attendees will come away with a copy of the publication itself as well as an understanding of its usefulness in the public library sector and beyond.
