The School Library and Youth Services (SLAYS) 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.


  • Continuing education sponsored by the section, affiliated organizations and more
  • Leadership opportunities 
  • Forums to network and collaborate with other school and youth services librarians
  • Option to serve on the Flickertale Committee (ND Youth Book Award) 
  • Session and poster presentations at the NDLA Annual Conference
