Expanding Library Outreach Services

December 19, 2016

The YALSA Future Report stressed the importance of serving new and non-readers, LBGT teens, teens of color, poor and homeless teens, and teens who are incarcerated. Teen Services Librarian Jesse Vieau discusses the services and programs that Madison Public Library offers outside the walls of the library to underserved and underrepresented populations.

Vieau and other librarians offer services that focus on the community as a resource and bring together a diverse spectrum of artists, educators, and activists. 

As these populations are often marginalized and underserved, it is crucial for libraries to recognize these populations and provide services and programs to them where they are. (YALSA)
