Our Mission

This site is currently under construction, as our listserver software has just changed and we are in the process of converting all the old webpages. 

PUBYAC is an Internet discussion list concerned with the practical aspects of Children and Young Adult Services in Public Libraries, focusing on programming ideas, outreach and literacy programs for children and caregivers, censorship and policy issues, collection development, administrative considerations, puppetry, job openings, professional development and other pertinent services and issues.

The name PUBYAC amalgamates the most important aspects of the discussion: PUBlic libraries,Young Adults, and Children.

The PUBYAC listserver is hosted by the Center for Children’s Books, http://ccb.lis.illinois.edu/
affiliated with the Graduate School of Library and Information Science http://www.lis.illinois.edu/
