Libraries can play a key role in supporting youth who are fearful or anxious, or who have been bullied, threatened, or assaulted following the election last week.  In order to help library staff in this effort, YALSA has compiled a list of free resources libraries can leverage to address concerns that youth and their families are having.  These resources can be accessed here: http://wikis.ala.org/yalsa/index.php/Supporting_Youth_in_the_Post-2016_Election_Climate
Please use them and share them widely, and thank you for all you do to support young people!

"Librarians are the coolest people out there, doing the hardest job out there on the frontlines. And every time I get to encounter or work with librarians, I'm always impressed by their sheer awesomeness."   - Neil Gaiman
