Recognizing that there was a need within the region to provide a space for like-minded individuals to discuss and exchange ideas and thoughts regarding youth services, SELCO revamped the children’s librarians group anew as the Youth Services Idea Exchange (YSIE). 

Open to all interested parties, the size of the group fluctuates depending upon interest.  Meetings are held twice annually in the Spring and Fall and provide both a structured time for pertinent topics as well as time for free-flow discussion.  So as to encourage participants to explore new ideas regarding youth spaces in their own libraries, the meeting rotates around the region to different volunteer libraries.
