The Section's concerns include the provision of library services to all children and young adults in different cultures and traditions in cooperation with appropriate organizations and to adults interacting with children and young adults. The Section works in cooperation with other IFLA Sections and a number of international reading and library associations, including the International Reading Association (IRA) and the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY).
