As part of the Serving Full T.I.L.T. series, we wanted to put together an infographic that would put all the information we had gathered into one place that would be easy to use and reference. This is that infographic. The sources for the information are cited below.
YALSA Issue Paper 2011:
In their 2007 study, the Public Library Association found that only 51 percent of public libraries have a full-time young adults services librarian. Sixty-two percent of these libraries have at least one staff person whose job it is specifically to serve teens. This is an improvement over figures from 1994, which indicated that only 11 percent of public libraries had a staff person whose job it was to serve teens.
