Libraries are for Everyone! : Opening Our Doors to People with Diversabilities (Disabilities) Through Resource Lists, Outreach and Programming


This was presented for the 3rd Annual Children and Teen Services Conference (C.A.T.S.) which was located in Kelowna, British Columbia. We had 67 participants from across B.C. and some from Alberta.
The presentation was to encourage other librarians to create their own Diversabilitiy Service Provider lists, and Teen and Children's bookslists, do programming and workshops on this topic in their communities.
All these lists have been sent across Canada. Interior Health, MCYSN, and Work B.C. are using them, as well as Doctors on the provincial website - Divisiont of Family Practice FETCH and PATHWAYS.
