Conversation Starter: ...And Social Justice for All: How Can Librarians and Social Workers Collaborate? Other Moscone Convention Center
130 (N)
Description :

Here in the nation's first city to hire a full-time social worker for its central public library, you'll hear a lot about serving our least advantaged patrons. But we and our social work colleagues have a shared history of commitment to social justice as well as much to learn from each other in theory and practice. Does your library system connect directly with social services? How do you make social justice part of your daily work? Bring learnings from your work life and from conference sessions to this open conversation with a public librarian and social worker.
