Libraries at the Intersection of Adult Education, Family Literacy, and Digital Equity

Wednesday, 9/23/2020 @ 2:00 PM-3:15 PM (Eastern)

In conjunction with Adult Education and Family Literacy Week, this webinar will explore the library’s place and role at the intersection of adult education, family literacy, and digital equity in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. The discussion will highlight how these connections impact communities of color and other under-served groups. Among the questions that the panel will consider are:

  • What does this interconnection mean for libraries serving these types of communities?
  • How can/should libraries approach/address these concerns?

The linkages among these three themes are particularly relevant to the current conditions under which libraries find themselves performing. Organized in a format the includes presentations and audience engagement, the panel will provide multiple views of and approaches to these issues.

This webinar is cosponsored by The Committee on Literacy, AILA, APALA, BCALA, CALA, and REFORMA.
