“Museums, libraries and archives can best serve the public by making their programs and facilities as broadly accessible as possible. This means thinking expansively about how to be widely-inclusive, welcoming, and collaborative.” – The Institute of Museum and Library Services
The Inclusive Library series of five webinars was developed to meet the agency’s goal of ensuring that all Texans receive responsive library services, including Texans from traditionally marginalized populations.
In this webinar, the
first in the Inclusive Library series, Dallas Public Library staff
Antoinette Carey Spriggs (Homeless Engagement Coordinator) and Heather
Lowe (Adult Services Administrator) will provide guidance on how to
better understand the needs of this population and how to provide more
inclusive services. They will also provide an overview of the Dallas
Public Library’s Homeless Engagement and Leadership Program (HELP) Desk
and share lessons learned.
