Expanding Information Access for Incarcerated People

This virtual training series includes examples of library services for incarcerated people and people who are previously incarcerated. It also provides background information on why library services to people in jails, juvenile detention centers, and prisons are part of the core services libraries provide. All trainings are asynchronous and free to access.

This series is developed by the San Francisco Public Library (SFPL) Jail and Reentry Services and funded by a grant from the Mellon Foundation. We are partnering with the American Library Association (ALA) to host videos on their Learning Management System (LMS).

Videos in this training series are also available on SFPL's Jail and Reentry Services YouTube playlist (titles begin with "Training" or search for "#ExpandingInformationAccessforIncarceratedPeople").

Participants can claim a certificate of completion from the course page after completing each training.
