Conference Room 3
Adult Programming Through a Social Justice Lens
Presenters: Sara Ray, Bloomfield Public Library; Rachel Tonucci, Bloomfield Public Library
When it comes to planning adult programming, how can we be as inclusive as possible, so that every community member feels a sense of belonging, including staff? Maybe you’ve heard comments such as “we don’t have enough: money, leadership support, knowledge about social justice, interested patrons,” and others. By using the CT State Library’s literacies and tracking a variety of awareness months, you can create a template to ensure that different skills and identities are represented in your programming. Then you can extend it to other aspects of librarianship such as policies, mission statements, service, collections, publicity, and more.
