ALA Unit/Subunit: PLA
Meeting Type: Program
Cost: Included with full conference registration.
Knowing our communities, celebrating differences and speaking up about those differences when necessary are part of being a public entity and serving ALL. We believe that in libraries, ALL ARE WELCOME. Social media is the perfect way to champion our patrons whether they are homeless, handicapped, LGBTQ, a member of minority populations, immigrants and others. The goal is to be culturally sensitive and to educate those who may not be open-minded on social media channels when these topics come up. Ready to get a little uncomfortable in order to serve your communities best? Want to hear stories of how Indianapolis Public Library stood up when someone spoke against these groups? We hope so!
