10/7: Library Services for Vermont Migrant Farmworkers and Families 11:00am -12:00pm
Migrant farmworkers and their families are an important part of the Vermont agricultural community, but they often live in geographic, linguistic and cultural isolation that can create barriers to health, education, wellness and other public services, including libraries. In this presentation, Naomi Wolcott MacCausland and Kelly Dolan from UVM Extension's Farmworker Programming will provide an overview of farmworkers in Vermont, barriers to accessing resources, and facilitate an open discussion on services and strategies for how libraries can connect with farmworkers in their community.
