Saturday Ignite Session: The Kids Are Not All White Forum/Update/Assembly McCormick Place West
W183a
Description :

Some 43% of Millennial adults are non-white and the U.S. Census Bureau projects that the full U.S. population will be majority non-white around 2043. Kidlit publishers do not reflect these population dynamics. Do library shelves and programs? All young readers need mirrors and windows that both reflect and open to the world around them. Library materials and programs are important in helping children make cross-cultural connections and developing skills necessary to function in a pluralistic society. Resources are readily available for librarians to meet these needs.
