The Wisconsin Library Association's Youth Services Section (YSS) advocates for professional empowerment, collaboration, and innovative, inclusive, and intentional service. To that end, YSS provides a forum and resources for people in Wisconsin's libraries who share a committment to serving children and young adults, their parents, caregivers, and teachers.

It is a vital, dynamic group whose interests focus on providing quality library service and encouraging literacy and library use.

YSS members include public and school library staff, library trustees and library supporters who work together to benefit youth in Wisconsin. To become a member simply check the YSS box on your WLA membership or renewal form. To become actively involved, please contact the current YSS Chair or Chair-elect to find out more about committee and conference opportunities for volunteering.
