Best Practices for library services for children and young adults
Best Practices may be events, reading promotions, campaigns, outreaches, partnerships, innovative use of library space or some other aspect of library services. The examples hopefully serve as a source of inspiration, benchmarking and a way to reach other library professionals for advice and discussion. The project has two parts: a YouTube video playlist for showcasing the variety of actions and later some examples collected on Section web pages.
Sister Libraries for children's & young adult's reading
It is a programme for children’s libraries to build a partnership, exchange views and experiences, collaborate and develop joint programs for children’s and YA's reading and literacy. The libraries need not be IFLA members. More important is, that the twinning is embedded in the institutions – it is not just something the librarian does on a personal basis.
The World through picture books
Showing librarians' favourite books from their country. It can be used:
- As a way of celebrating and promoting the language, cultures and quality of children’s book publishing from each country;
- By countries wishing to purchase books from other countries and looking for popular and “multi-cultural” titles;
- By Sister Libraries as a way of exploring the children’s literature of their Sister Library country.
