CSRT & YART were combined as one round table in May 2014. The new round table is called the Youth Services Round Table (YSRT).
Announcements (as of 5/16/16)
*It was great to see so many of you at ULA Conference in Layton on May 4-6, 2016. We had the sad announcement that Michelle is not able to step in as YSRT Chair, but Lindsey was ready to do so! Heidi will stay on in an unofficial consulting capacity (and keep up the newsletter!). And we are now looking to fill a Member-at-Large position. We would especially love someone with a focus on children’s services!
*Heidi’s final act as chair–she hired someone to create a YSRT logo! The board voted and our designer is putting on the finishing touches. We will reveal the final product soon!!
*The 2nd annual YSRT Winter Social was at Heidi’s home on Friday, January 22nd from 7pm – 8:30pm. We enjoyed snacking and talking shop.
*The 2015 YSRT Fall Workshop – That Thing You Do! – was held Friday, Sept. 18th at Pleasant Valley branch in Ogden, UT. We had a great turn out and enjoyed learning why we do that thing you do–and how we can be even better at it! Powerpoints and handouts used at the Workshop are attached below.
*All issues of the YSRT newsletter are linked below. If you would like to be added to the list to have upcoming issues emailed to you, please contact Heidi. Also, please contact Heidi if you have an idea for an article, Program swap, or would like to have your library spotlighted.
*YSRT is on Social Media!
