Sexual harassment from patrons has long been a significant issue for library employees, but this doesn’t mean it should be tolerated.

Participants will also be able to submit anonymous questions to be answered at the end of the presentation, if they so choose.

Katie is Head of Circulation & Reference at Lake Bluff (IL) Public Library. She is also the author of We Can Do Better — Best (And Worst) Practices for Managers Responding to Sexual Harassment Claims, the Nov/Dec 2021 Featured Article in Public Libraries Magazine (a PLA Publication).
