On July 27 2020, ALA President Julius C. Jefferson, Jr. launched Holding Space: A National conversation series with libraries is the American Library Association’s nationwide virtual tour to highlight the innovation and impact of a diverse range of libraries and engage stakeholders to advocate for libraries and the communities they serve.

 

The California Library Association is honored to host President Julius on Friday, August 7 at 12:30pm Listen to the Kids: Youth- and Family-Centered Practices at Oakland Public Library

Oakland Public Library offers an array of programs and services for children and families that honor the input of all stakeholders, adjust to meet areas of greatest need, reflect evidence-based practices, and leverage partnerships to deepen connections within the community. Join Julius for a series of interviews with members of the extraordinary team that create and implement these programs, followed by a conversation with and performances by Oakland Youth Poet Laureate finalists!

As we work to serve Libraries during this time, services for families are crucial, and we value this chance to highlight the work in California on a national stage.
