Who Are Your Library Partners?

Forming partnerships allows libraries to expand their services, share their expertise and strengthen their position in the community. Additionally, working with other organizations to support youth services in libraries is a two-way street, where the partnering organization benefits, as well as the library. The ALSC Building Partnerships Committee helps identify and share information about building effective, cooperative and innovative partnerships. Linked below is our growing list of organizations that support Youth Services.
