CHICAGO — The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) has named Megan Camero as the new Member Manager for its teen programming website, Teen Programming HQ.

“I am extremely stoked to bring a new viewpoint and new ideas to Teen Programming HQ. It will be rewarding to use my experience as a middle and high school teacher, as well as the knowledge I’ve gained working with teens and young adults in city and rural libraries. I am excited to help programming librarians and library staff refresh HQ to help meet our patrons’ needs – not only through programs, but through outreach and marketing ideas as well, to help bring in this underserved age group!”

Camero will serve a one-year term starting in April to manage the Teen Programming HQ programming database. As Member Manager, Camero will ensure the site is relevant, interactive, engaging, and meeting member needs for information about innovation in teen programming and participates in the maintenance of the site, and work within guidelines for the site as set by the YALSA Board of Directors. For this member volunteer opportunity, Camero will receive an honorarium of $500 per year. 

The mission of Teen Programming HQ is to provide a one-stop-shop for finding and sharing information about library programs of all kinds for and with teens. The site promotes best practices in programming by featuring user-submitted programs that align with YALSA’s Teen Programming Guidelines, Futures Report, and Mission Statement.

The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) mission is to support library staff in alleviating the challenges teens face and putting all teens ‒ especially those with the greatest needs ‒ on the path to successful and fulfilling lives.
