Libraries: Partners in Equity

Mar 7, 2022

11:00am – 12:00pm CT

As schools focus on improving diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) for students, we are overlooking a hidden asset - the power of school libraries. Through their accessible resources, instruction, and access for all, school libraries should be a center of equity work. Two campus librarians and district librarians will explore ways libraries are vital supports to equity, inclusion and access and will engage participants in reflecting on how to improve their own efforts.
