Are you inadvertently creating access barriers that prevent your patrons from using the library? Do your policies and procedures create barriers for your community? This program will help you recognize institutional barriers and how they disenfranchise the populations that need library services the most.
Participants will leave the webinar with:
• The ability to recognize unintentional barriers
• Real-life examples of implementing change
• Components for the conversation to begin making changes
