YA@AL (pronounced “Ya’ll!”) is a program of the Headquarters (Augusta) Library of the East Central Georgia Regional Library System. The mission of the program is to provide exceptional service to local young adults (aged 11 to 17 years old) through the delivery of quality educational and recreational library media and programming. The goal is for participants to positively identify their past experiences, nurture skillful decision-making in their current situation, and foster the development of advanced critical thinking skills that will serve them well throughout life.
Great YA@AL programming is specifically aimed at students ages 11-14, while Greater YA@AL is more appropriate for students ages 15-17. Greatest YA@AL is aimed at all youth in this age bracket (and sometimes, even their parents/guardians). The show will be taken on the road to other branches in the system and welcomes PINES cardholders from all over the CSRA to participate in most activities.
