SLAYS: School Library and Youth Services

About Us

The School Library and Youth Services section works to keep its members up to date and abreast of the latest trends and issues in youth librarianship. It also serves as the platform for nominating literary works that are deemed excellent reads for youth in North Dakota. Furthermore, SLAYS is a driving force behind finding continuing education opportunities for its members.
