Through the Plexi Glass
With the onslaught of social and civil unrest in our nation and the uncertain reality of COVID-19, our library rededicated our focus not only on diverse and inclusive services and programs, but also listened to the needs of our teens. Connection, belonging and inclusion were the driving forces that led us to many initiatives including virtual escape rooms, social justice books talks and diversity audits on our entire collection. This session will discuss the unique ways Worthington Libraries is interacting with our teens in virtual spaces to foster community by providing access to services to remain connected during these challenging times.
