    Beg, Borrow, & Steal 2019

    Friday, November 1, 2019, 10 AM - 2 PM

    Maine State Library, Conference Room

    230 State St, Augusta, ME 04333

    $25 per person; please register today! 

    Join YSS on Friday, November 1 from 10-2 for a fun info-filled workshop at the Maine Statec Library! For just $25, you will get lunch, professional development, networking, and support the Youth Services Section of the Maine Library Association.

    This year’s Beg, Borrow, & Steal will feature our usual sharing/discussion session, a tour of the MSL UP Room, a short speech from our new Youth Consultant, Kara Reiman, and a rundown of what your YSS Board has going on. We will also be holding elections for YSS board member positions. If you know of someone awesome who would like to join the YSS board please nominate them!

    YSS is looking for: one Member at Large this year. This is a two year term. Members-at-Large work on projects not necessarily specified in the bylaws, and represent interests of youth-related librarianship that might not otherwise have a voice. Attendance at meetings is expected, as well as attendance at any related conferences. Time commitment for these positions is not large, and they are a lot of fun. If you have any questions about the positions, or about becoming a member of YSS please email us at

    Lunch is included in your registration and will consist of a variety of sandwich, veggie, fruit, and sweets platters. Please let us know of any dietary restrictions when you register.

    FMI please contact YSS at the email above or contact the MLA Business Office:         

    We look forward to seeing you there!
