During the all committee meeting, I attended the Outreach meeting. The purpose of this committee is:
To address the needs of young adults who do not or cannot use the library because of socioeconomic, legal, educational, or physical factors.
More information can be found here.
Victoria Vogal of the Rocky River Public Library is the incoming chair. Lisa Youngblood from the Harker Heights Public Library will continue to be involved in many initiatives of the group and was the former chair who dynamically led the committee previously.
The committee is preparing for a program in Annaheim that will address using the net as outreach to teens; specifically those that are unable to get to the library. We were also asked to serve as a resource for the Department of Library and Information Studies in Buffalo, NY for a project an Assistant Professor is working on.
Stay tuned to the committee and share what your committee is doing.
