Serving the GLBT Community: Where Access, Equality and Intellectual Freedom Collide

Ann K. Symons, ALA Past President | E-mail: [email protected]

What can our libraries do to ensure that we are serving all who live in our communities, including a growing population of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender (GLBT) families. The next decade will bring further evolution in marriage equality and in the numbers of GLBT families with children. Participants will engage in discussions about our service responsibilities, professional values, access issues and intellectual freedom matters involved in serving GLBT families with toddlers to teens.
