First Tuesdays was designed as a continuing-education opportunity for staff of libraries in Washington State, this free web presentation from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., lets attendees share their skills and successes and learn about new topics. The special-subject presentations, lasting about 60 minutes, are recorded so that others may listen at their own convenience.
The kids are not all white presented by Edith Campbell, Cunningham Memorial Library, Indiana State University, August 4, 2015, 9:00 AM Pacific Time
Some 43% of Millennial adults are non-white and the U.S. Census Bureau projects that the full U.S. population will be majority non-white around 2043. Kidlit publishers do not reflect these population dynamics. Do library shelves and programs? All young readers need mirrors and windows that both reflect and open to the world around them. Library materials and programs are important in helping children make cross-cultural connections and developing skills necessary to function in a pluralistic society. Resources are readily available for librarians to meet these needs.
