UWO’s Student Librarian’s Association for Children and Youth Services, or SLACYS (for when you want to talk about the group without encouraging repetitive stress injuries in your tongue or wrists). This is a student group focusing on encouraging the professional development of MLIS students interested in Children and Youth services. We have planned activities including discussions of YA novels, storytime and books for babies practice sessions, potential outreach into the community through volunteer efforts and tours, and blog updates.

Our public meetings are held every-other Wednesday at noon  in the Grad Lounge, 4th Floor NCB. Everyone is welcome!
