ITHAKA is sponsoring the Library Services to the Justice Involved Roundtable at the ALA Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, Friday, June 24, 2022 at 10:30-11:30 AM at the Washington Convention Center, 152B.
Library Services to the Justice Involved (LSJI) is an interest group for library professionals, students, correctional staff, volunteers, and anyone who serves the under-served in correctional settings (prison, jail, detention centers, state mental health institutes, juvenile facilities) or justice-involved individuals (those in halfway houses, community corrections, sober living, transitional housing, on parole, or the formerly incarcerated).
We invite all members of this community to join us for conversation, reflection, and self-care. Besides holding space for one another to share about the challenges and high points of serving people impacted by incarceration, our round-table discussion will offer a chance for participants to make announcements and give updates relevant to others in our community. Stacy Burnett (JSTOR Labs), Anne Ray (Reveal Digital), and Kurtis Tanaka (Ithaka S+R), will be in attendance.
