Korea hosts youth services international symposium

Korea’s National Library for Children and Young Adults (NLCY) is inviting a dozen international and Korean speakers to present papers for an international symposium on library services for children and YAs. The symposium will feature various sessions, presented in English, on key topics:
– Introducing reading promotion programs for toddlers, children and YAs
– Library services for underprivileged families, including multicultural children
– Better digital age library services for youth
– Reinforcing professionalism and leadership among children’s  libraries
– Cooperating with relevant organizations towards successful children’s services

The international symposium provides an important opportunity for Korean librarians to seek ways to enhance children’s library services and encourage reading promotion. With better services available to youth, young people will visit libraries more, find enjoyment in reading, and see  library engagement as a way of life. Hopefully, the symposium will cultivate the minds of youthy, and encourage them to become responsible citizens who will dream a future full of dreams and imagination. The call for papers will become available on the IFLA website. NLCY is please to invite librarians to join them. For details, contact Lee Sun Hwa at hanase@korea.kr
