LAMBDA: Library Anchor Models for Bridging Diversity Achievements
Activities and materials will focus on educating library personnel about the needs of LGBTQ homeless youth who come to the public library to access the Internet, read, find employment, contact family, or socialize with others.
Funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), LAMBDA is a partnership with the University of Tennessee’s School of Information Sciences and the Center for Literacy, Education & Employment (CLEE).
