While your library is ADA compliant and welcomes all, there may be hidden barriers for some in your community that hinder them from using your library.

  • Who isn’t using your library, and why?
  • How can you find and remove those barriers to make your library more accessible to all?

Join us for this interactive session to discuss how to find out who isn’t coming to your library and why, and talk through strategies for breaking down road blocks that some members of your community have to enable them to become more active library patrons.
