In a Community Library, two Youth Services Librarians develop, promote and present programs for the young child through school-age. All Young Child programs are based on the pre-literacy skills of Every Child Ready to Read. Librarians can expect to deliver between 2-9 weekly programs with support from Library Assistants. Librarians also work with teens through the Teen Leadership Corps.

They assist members with reference, readers’ advisory, and technical assistance, and are responsible for the maintenance and marketing of areas of the library collection.

Youth Services Librarians participate in system-wide initiatives, such as the Storytelling Festival, Summer at the Library Kick-Off, and Halloween Hoot.
