Indigenous Services Working Group Meeting

When & Where
Date / Time:
June 07, 2022 - 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM

YRL would like to invite interested libraries to participate in a newly established Indigenous Services Working Group. The goals and activities of this group are:

  • Share current in-library initiatives and programs that support Indigenous patrons and community engagement in Indigenous culture & knowledge
  • Identify and advise YRL on current and potential projects for the region relating to staff PD, special events and other areas of interest
  • Build relationships among library staff who are interested in better serving Indigenous populations and engaging non-Indigenous patrons in learning

The next meeting will be a discussion of suggested PD topics for staff. The group will be discussing how we can plan for and support PD related to Indigenous services & programming. Libraries may send as many staff as they wish to participate; there is no limit. To register for this meeting email askyrl@yrl.ab.ca for the link, and we hope to see you there!
