Libraries in the Capital Area District seek to establish our libraries as safe and productive places for children and teens. The Capital Area Library District aims to help coordinate youth services.
Especially for Young Children
Learn about PA’s One Book Every Young Child program.
The Teen Networking Team (TNT) formed in response to library needs to learn more about serving teens. See the notes from our first TNT meeting.
See here notes from CCLS’s TNT Meeting in Jan 2008.: 08-01-31-ccls-teen-networking-group-meeting-summary.doc
The district subscribes to a print copy of VOYA, the Voice of Youth Advocates: the library magazine serving those who serve young adults; if you are interested in having it routed to you, please contact Carrie.
