SERVING HOMELESS LIBRARY USERS IN ACADEMIC AND PUBLIC LIBRARIES

The U.S. has over 600,000 homeless people with needs ranging from a place to sleep to mental health and medical care. The library, with its mission of service, is a logical place for the homeless to congregate during the day. Experts will discuss issues, challenges, and share innovative best practices for serving homeless patrons.

Topics include design considerations, security issues and homeless LGBTQ youth.  There will also be a keynote speaker from the National Coalition for the Homeless.
