Description:

PLEASE NOTE: While parts of this webinar will discuss issues in California, those in other parts of the country will benefit from its general applicability.

Public Libraries are often seen as community centers in terms of their collections, programs, services, and space. With the implementation of the Common Core State Standards now occurring in California and 44 other states, the time is perfect for public libraries to be seen in their communities as an integral piece of the CCSS.

During this webinar, participants will learn what the CCSS are, how they will affect students in California, as well as simple and effective ways to incorporate them into existing library programs and services. Find out how to collaborate with local schools to assist students as they begin to navigate the “staircase of complexity” and “integrated models of literacy.”

- Have a basic understanding of the California Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and why they were adopted
- Know the role public libraries have in assisting schools with the CCSS

"Public Libraries and the Homeless: Legal Issues"

Date & Time: Tuesday, September 17, 2013. Pacific - 12 PM, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM.

Description:
- Does your library serve patrons who appear to be homeless?
- Can you tell someone to leave large personal possessions outside the library?
- What rights do library users have and what library policies do courts consider reasonable?

Because courts give greater latitude to library rules that are behavior focused, and a tighter scrutiny to rules based on status or speech, it’s important to know the how to frame your policies, especially when dealing with specific populations such as the homeless.

This one-hour webinar will look at the movement for Homeless Persons’ Bill of Rights and Fairness, and the current legal rights and professional ethics as they apply to public libraries.

It will also discuss specific issues such as oversize parcels, behavior issues, and qualifications for library cards for customers who don’t have a permanent address.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

- Know about the rights that homeless patrons have and rights they are striving for
- Review library ethical statements on service to the poor and the freedom to read
- Understand some legal nuances between rules that target behavior versus rules that are focused on user status

This webinar will be of interest to front line public staff, administrators, trustees – particularly in public libraries, but the analysis applies to all publicly funded libraries.
