2019 AASL National Conference

Regenerating Empathy and Equity at the Heart of Library Programming

Nov 16, 2019 1:10pm ‐ Nov 16, 2019 2:10pm

Credits: None available.

Standard: $6.99
Members: $0.00


Libraries have always been knowledge centers. This is truer than ever in the digital age. Information is in our pockets, but we must regenerate and reposition the library as the hub of knowledge building in an increasingly divisive world. Participants will learn how to infuse their school’s curriculum with reading initiatives focused on choice and empathy, and how to make their library the epicenter for essential conversations around equity, inclusion, and social justice.

Learning Objectives:
  • Participants will be able to describe their understanding of cultural relevancy and placement within the global learning community.
  • Participants will be able to evaluate a variety of perspectives during learning activities.
  • Participants will be able to reflect on their own place within the global learning community.
