Youth Services

KDLA supports public librarians who serve children and young adults by providing training, consultation, and coordination of statewide reading promotions. While we do not provide direct services to children or teens, our goal is to assist library staff who provide services to the children and teens of communities across the Commonwealth. Please contact Beth Milburn with any comments or suggestions.
