Libraries for Children and Young Adults Section

The Section's major purpose is to support the provision of the library service and reading promotion to children and young adults throughout the world. Its main objectives are to promote international cooperation in the fields of library services to children and young adults, and to encourage the exchange of experience, education and training and research in all aspects of this subject. 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).
