Webinar: Creating Welcoming and Accessible Libraries for Children with Disabilities

Upcoming Webinar: Creating Welcoming and Accessible Libraries for Children with Disabilities.
Big or small, rural or urban--all public libraries serve children with disabilities in their
communities. Please join librarian and advocate, Renee Grassi, as she shows how your library can develop an awareness and an enhanced spirit of inclusion to children with disabilities and their needs for library service. In this webinar, attendees will learn how to perform a community needs assessment and advocate for families, forge new partnerships with other agencies and organizations, and find new and innovative children’s programming and outreach ideas. Participants will also learn about accessible customer service and different approaches to re-evaluate existing children’s programs to attract a more inclusive audience.
