This session will examine the ways in which public libraries mitigate risk in the lives of all patrons, with particular attention paid to vulnerable populations. Many of us believe that books and libraries are life-changing; for folks coping with extreme difficulties, libraries can also be lifesaving. We will define and consider our work through this lens and consider the ways in which it can reshape our service to patrons who are struggling.
NOTE: While registration is unlimited, attendance in each session is limited to the first 50 people who join a session. Sessions will be recorded and made available within 24 hours.
