1 to 3 pm session: Why Accessible Library Service Matters in Public Libraries

Description:  Let’s talk about why accessibility matters, and why we’re all hearing so much more about it than we ever have before. Along with some special guests, we’ll load public library staff up with resources for expanding accessible library service, talk about changes we see coming, and make the most of the time we have in a room together. We’ll round out our session with a fun, but brief, technology demonstration from which we guarantee you’ll learn something you didn’t know before.

Presenters:

Margarete Wiedemann

Sabina Iseli-Otto

Cost: BCLA / BCLTA / HLABC Member: $50, Non-member: $80
