YA Librarian Round Table Topics


I've been the chair and co-chair of a round table for several years. We've gone through lots of topic. In September, we plan out our year, 8 months worth of topics. we go through the list of ideas everyone brings to the table and then we vote on them. Sometimes it coincides with a monthly celebration, but not always.

Usually we talk about program ideas and books (sometimes creating book lists)

I'd like to create a new list of topics for this year, but I'm having some trouble getting started on ideas.

Here's what I have so far:

Usual topics:
Hot fiction 
Summer Reading Program Ideas
Makerspace program ideas
Sci Fi/Fantasy books
Middle School Reads


Possible new ideas:
Creating or updating your teen website
Advocating for teen services 
Measuring success: programs and collection 
Collection Development
Pop Culture in the Library

Can you add your topic ideas (either ones your round table talked about successfully or ideas you wished they would talk about)???

I would appreciate it!
