Description: 

In 2016-2017, the Province of Alberta provided funding to regional library systems and large urban libraries for on-reserve and on-settlement Indigenous populations. PLSB hosted a working group of librarians and trustees from across Alberta over the past year and is holding a symposium on the topic of public library service with Indigenous communities in February 2017. Members of this panel have served on the CFLA-FCAB committee on Truth and Reconciliation, and will give an overview of that work during this presentation.
