FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CHICAGO, IL — The Public Library Association (PLA) knows its members and their libraries may be struggling to respond to the post-election challenges our communities face. Public libraries have an unparalleled ability to bring people and knowledge together, especially in times of uncertainty and division.
As we invite our communities to have critical conversations, we must be committed to ensuring a safe place for all that reflects and serves the diversity of our nation. PLA is offering a variety of resources to help its members serve their communities. Included in these resources is an online discussion for members to share examples of how their library has responded to post-election challenges.
To access the resources, join the discussion, or suggest additional resources, please visit the PLA website.
