Illinois Youth Services Institute (IYSI): Be Bold! Experiment

April 1, 2016 - April 2, 2016

The 2016 Illinois Youth Services Institute (IYSI): Be Bold! Experiment brings together Youth Services library staff from all across the state, giving them an opportunity to grow, network, and be inspired.

This inaugural institute will be held at the Marriott Hotel and Conference Center in downtown Normal, IL, on April 1-2, 2016. Currently, Youth Services is undergoing a profound transformation, as libraries continue to evolve and redefine their roles in the community. This two-day conference will bring together more than 200 children and teen services staff to share and experience best practices during these times of change. Formal sessions, vendor exhibits, and hands-on opportunities combined with the networking opportunities will create a dynamic and collaborative learning environment for all.

This Institute has been developed by LACONI YSS and the Illinois Library Association, in collaboration with RAILS and Heartland.
