The California Library Association will collaborate with the National Summer Learning Association and WebJunction to work with library staff across the country on the Building Equity-based Summers project to build equity into summer services. The project will bring opportunities for states to re-envision summer services and effectively engage youth and families from minority communities. Activities will include co-design and training, reflection on learning, review and iteration of materials, a community of practice, opportunities to connect with community stakeholders, and implementation of equity-based practices. The project will result in enhanced skills for library staff to work with youth and families from minority communities and state library administrative agency staff in co-designing and bringing equity-based initiatives to library staff in their state, as well as the youth, families, and adults who, through targeted equity-based opportunities, will learn, grow, and thrive.
