Creating Safe and Inclusive Spacing for 2SLGBTQIA+ Youth in Public and School Libraries

Wednesday, February 16 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Register for a seat in this one-hour webinar.

This webinar focuses on the process and benefits of creating safe and inclusive spaces for 2SLGBTQIA+ youth in public and school libraries. It will cover a variety of topics ranging from spacing of the library environment to community development & internet awareness to creating queer-straight alliances in the time of COVID-19. The hope is to allow for attendees to think creatively and outside-of-the-box when it comes to making their space welcoming for 2SLGBTQIA+ youth by looking at every aspect of public and school libraries including programming, collections, and how library staff interacts with the community.

Presented by :: Christopher Knapp

Christopher Knapp is a Youth Community Engagement Librarian with the Prince George Public Library in Prince George, British Columbia, Canada. Prior to becoming a librarian, he was a senior high school teacher in Vancouver, BC. Having been a member of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community since his late-teens, but only “coming out” in his late 20s, Christopher is a strong advocate for 2SLGBTQIA+ rights and information access for youth and children, specializing his MLIS degree at Western University in London, Ontario on this topic.
