Toolkit: Library Services to Underserved Children and Their Caregivers

The 2020-21 Library Service to Underserved Children and Their Caregivers committee devoted its service year to creating a vibrant, dynamic toolkit that provides up-to-date resources for working with marginalized populations. Each section of toolkit provides professional and leisure reading recommendations, support for programming, and materials for families. Section topics, including release dates, are: 

  • Access to Technology – February 2021 (Children & Technology Committee)
  • Autism and Sensory Processing Disorder – August 2020
  • Children with Print Disabilities – April 2021
  • Financial Insecurity and Homelessness – October 2020
  • New Americans - February 2022
  • Spanish Speaking Populations – December 2020

Each section exists as a separate document and all are housed on Google Drive. Access all the sections from:
