The SSA program has proven to be very successful, and it will now be made available to youth services staff across New York State through a partnership with OCLC’s WebJunction.\u0026nbsp;\u003co:p\u003e\u003c/o:p\u003e\u003c/span\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-size:12.0pt\"\u003eThis webinar will serve as an introduction to the SSA training modules and facilitated training available to youth services staff, as well as a chance to learn more about this program and how it can benefit storytime programming at YOUR library.
