About the Fair
Each year, the ALA Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services invites library professionals from all kinds of institutions to submit proposals to participate in the ALA Diversity and Outreach Fair, which is held during ALA’s Annual Conferences.
Generously sponsored by DEMCO, he Fair highlights library services to underserved or underrepresented communities, including people with disabilities; people experiencing poverty and homelessness; people of color; English-language learners; gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people; new Americans, new and non-readers; older adults; people living in rural areas; incarcerated people and ex-offenders; and mobile library services and bookmobiles.
The theme for this year's fair is "Inclusive Outreach: Providing Services to the Underserved and Marginalized." http://www.ala.org/aboutala/offices/olos/divfair/diversityfair
