In addition to my witty and wisdom filled writings from this soon to be award-winning blog (some day we will win something), I write a column for PLA’s Public Libraries. The column is called “Forward Thinking” and is co-written by John Spears, Executive Director of the Salt Lake City Public Library System. The goal of the column is to not only highlight innovative librarians, libraries and ideas but also to encourage people to look outside their comfort zones when it comes to being creative. Currently I am working on a piece that relates to diversity and I need your help.
In the comments below, please write about any innovative services, programs, or systems that focus on diversity. Tell me about people that are crafting new ideas to either be more diverse in our libraries or creating programs the celebrate diversity. Thanks in advance for your input!
