Diversity isn’t just about race and ethnicity! Diversity pertains to ability levels, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, and more. This webinar will focus on increasing participants' level of understanding of the value of providing culturally competent library service in order to meet the information needs of an increasingly diverse group: children.

At the conclusion of this workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify the components of cultural competence;
  • Define principles of inclusion for all library user groups;
  • Articulate strategies that can be implemented in the library in order to provide more effective outreach to children.
