The Focus on Children and Young Adults Institute seeks to provide a foundation of professional knowledge about youth services necessary for the operation of small public libraries in Oregon.  Participants will attend several training sessions over the course of three and a half days.  The sessions concentrate on the principles of public library services to children and teens, and how to put those principles into practice.  Session topics may change from year to year based on research, library practices, and trends which change and improve continually.  Feedback from the previous Focus Institute participants is also considered when planning session topics.  Training sessions are presented by highly skilled, experienced Youth Services Librarians in Oregon.  Presenters are typically active members of the Oregon Library Association's Children's Services Division<http://www.olaweb.org/mc/page.do?sitePageId=61033> (CSD) and Oregon Young Adult Network<http://www.olaweb.org/mc/page.do?sitePageId=61034> (OYAN).
