Get Involved and Participate in YALSA

YALSA offers a variety of ways to participate at a variety of commitment levels. Find out how to get involved:

  • Help YALSA have a presence at your state library association conference by presenting a program, helping to staff an exhibit booth or hosting a happy hour.  Learn more on YALSA's wiki or contact Letitia Smith at

  • Start a YALSA Interest Group. These can be based on a topic, like makerspaces or science fiction, or they can be based on geography, like a Nashville Area Interest Group, or an International Members's Interest Group.
  • Register for YALSA’s major yearly initiatives: Teen Read Week and Teen Tech Week. Use each website to find program and event ideas, resources for planning, publicity tools, and more.
