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 populations that are marginalized. 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:
