The IFLA Libraries for Children and Young Adults Section held it’s 2021 Midyear Meeting online on March 19th via Zoom. Since the registrations were booked very fast we decided to stream the Midyear Meeting – for the first time in the history of the Section!
Five presentations covering the worldwide challenges to libraries for children and young adults and their dealings during the Covid-19 pandemic will form the center piece of the Section's annual Midyear Meeting 2021. The presentations will be followed by a live Q&A session with the speakers.
In conjunction with Safer Internet Day, February 9, 2021, IFLA's Section on Children & Young Adults' Safer Internet Day Working Group has created a survey. The survey had a good response until March 9 with nearly 400 answers - we decided to leave it open until April 1 to increase the number of information from around the world.
With the lines that follow we would like to memorialize Viviana Quiñones, our dear and outstanding colleague in the IFLA section 'Libraries for Children and Young Adults'. After more than two years of illness, she died on 16 December 2020.
