Safeguarding Our Histories: Libraries & Inclusive Stories

Mar 6, 2024

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

This session will look at the ways in which libraries can support educators, storytellers, and the public in ensuring access to information that supports an understanding of a truly inclusive and representative history at a time when that access is under attack. We will bring together library and education leaders, storytellers, and historians to talk about ways we can come together to push back against censorship and build a future based on a shared understanding of our past.
