Pride at the Library: LGBTQ Programming For All Ages

Class Details

The LGBTQ community is an underserved and vulnerable population, often facing misinformation and censorship. Libraries have a unique capability to reach out to this group, providing a safe space to access materials and gather together, as well as provide education to the larger community. This talk will discuss how to develop engaging LGBTQ programming for all ages, gain the support of your administration, locate community partners, promote your programs, deal with media attention, and manage complaints.

Presenter: Deena Caswell has represented the Cherry Hill Public Library in the Cherry Hill and South Jersey community since the fall of 2014, first in her role as Outreach Librarian and now as the Supervisor of Outreach and Diversity. As supervisor, she manages and directs all outreach initiatives for the library, and crafts programming and outreach to underrepresented and underserved communities. Ms. Caswell holds a BA in Government from Smith College, and an MS in Library and Information Science from Drexel University. She was named a 2016 Rising Star by the New Jersey Library Association.
