If 2020 has shown us anything it’s that, now more than ever, library staff need to find creative and flexible ways to bring resources and programming to families where they are in their communities. Additionally, we must continue finding new ways to serve families who have been left out of traditional library programming in order to build equity, develop inclusive practice, and encourage diverse voices.

In this session, a panel of youth services presenters will share their approach to serving families in poverty, immigrant communities, and rural communities as examples of how library services and programs can be designed with the changing needs of today’s children and families in mind.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Reviewed 7 keys of effective partnership
  • Gained insight into 5 innovative ways libraries are serving communities
  • Learn about co-design and its potential impact on involving community in program design
  • Develop an outreach mission statement for your community
  • Gain an understanding of the importance of Letters of Agreement and Memorandum of Understanding

This webinar will be of interest to: Youth services librarians and outreach staff at all levels.
