Abstract: With the proliferation of bite-sized reading due to digitalisation, the infographic guidelines for library services to children provides a visual summary for easy access and immediate take-aways for children's librarians anytime anywhere. The engaging visuals quickly and clearly communicate the fundamentals in developing high-quality children's services in the digital age and recognizing the evolving role of the library in modern society. It also serves as quick talking points "at-a-glance" for stakeholders and local politicians to get buy-in and support the development of a vibrant and inclusive children library. It further directs to the complete guidelines for those who seek more details on how to promote and encourage the development of effective library services for children of all abilities by giving supplementary guidance to the international library community about children's needs and rights on information, literacy and reading. These guidelines are built on the collective knowledge of experienced library professionals from IFLA's Libraries for Children and Young Adults. By breaking down the comprehensive details into bite-size information and striking visuals, the infographic guide makes it easy to understand and inspire children's librarians to take action to benefit more libraries and children around the world.
