As always, we welcome an emphasis on partnerships with other libraries, sister cities, cultural institutions, and/or community-based organizations. If your library or academic institution has a particular collection, program, or unique approach on:
1) Supporting the educational goals of binational, immigrant or refugee communities
2) Connecting multi-language library users to current services in your community
3) Creative and impactful approaches to reach underserved communities.
Here are some keywords to inspire you: LGBTQIA+, social justice, inclusion, mental and emotional health outreach, immigrant, refugee, indigenous, multi-generational, undocumented, first-generation graduate, information literacy, engagement, intersectionality, pedagogy, critical libraries (#critlib), marginalized communities, language barriers, accessibility, relationships, knowledge, skills, sanctuary, unheard stories, shared humanity.
