Workshop: Long Overdue – Enhancing Library Services for LGBTQ Individuals & Families
April 24, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pmFree – $10.00
Join us at the Mid York Library System office to learn more about how libraries can better help LGBTQ individuals and families. Lunch will be provided.
This interactive training assists library staff in improving access for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer-identified, and questioning (LGBTQ) communities. Participants will explore common challenges encountered by LGBTQ individuals of all ages and leave better equipped to serve as resources, particularly for youth. The training provides promising practices for communication, privacy, collections, and programming to better meet the needs of LGBTQ individuals and families.
