FHSLA /TBLC Responsive Librarianship: Addressing Community Mental Health Information Needs Through Customized Reading & Programming

TBLC logo

Maintaining the health and wellness of a community can be challenging even in the most ideal situations, and the effects of the global pandemic on the most vulnerable members of the community will continue to stress social service organizations, even after the immediate health issues have been addressed. Barriers such as economic insecurity, inequitable digital access, unequal distribution of risk, insufficient public transportation infrastructures, and inadequate information literacy skills development can disenfranchise those most in need of services. Libraries, as trusted and established public institutions, can help empower communities through programs such as Responsive Librarianship.

Responsive librarianship is defined as the delivery of personalized library services in response to an exigence that produces a positive change in a user’s situation over time. Responsive Librarianship differs from traditional bibliotherapy in that it is a data-driven therapeutic reading scheme leveraging customary library services to address a narrowly defined need for a particular library population. Responsive Librarianship uses targeted reading and library services to meet the needs of the community based on three assumptions. First, library services are personalized to determine the appropriate information-based intervention for each patron. Second, services are designed to solve a specific exigence or exigencies ascertained through a reference interview, service delivery interactions, or community assessment. Third, practitioners assess users’ sustained level of engagement with texts and library programs by measuring the level of change throughout the library ecology.

Developed by researchers at the University of South Florida’s Responsive Librarianship Lab, Responsive Librarianship has been in place in our community since 2015, providing library services to adult, teen, and pre-teen populations coping with various mental health, wellness, and physical concerns. Responsive Librarianship programs are in practice in Hillsborough and Pasco counties, as well as in the City of Temple Terrace. Similar programs are planned for the Miami-Dade Public Library System in 2021 and a state-wide system of Responsive Librarianship is also being developed through a partnership with the Vermont Department of Labor to facilitate return to work programs. In this presentation, we’ll be discussing Responsive Librarianship and the implementation of Responsive Librarianship programming.

After Teen Services: Library Programming and Outreach for the New Adult

TBLC logo

According to the Pew Research Center over 50% of people between the ages of 16 and 29 visit a bookmobile or library each year. However, libraries often omit this new adult population from dedicated programming and outreach.

During this two-hour session, we will identify services and programming initiatives created with the new adult’s needs and interests in mind, comparing such programs to separate teen and adult initiatives.   We will also design outreach plans directed to new adults in public and academic libraries.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define New Adult
  • Compare the needs of the new adult population with teens and adults
  • Identify programs for the new adult population
  • Design outreach plans to the new adult population
