Well Received Spring Talks

This past spring, the Youth Section organized an event entitled “Libraries Making a Difference for Children and Teens at Risk” at McGill University's downtown campus. The first speaker, Nicholas Warren, gave his talk -- “More hats than libraries: Serving at-risk youth at multiple alternative schools”,  wherein he shared his successes, challenges, and strategies  for working with at-risk teenagers at EMSB alternative schools. Carole Boubalos provided the second talk: "Programming ideas to serve the special needs of autistic children in a library setting".
