The mission of the Library Research Round Table (LRRT) is to contribute toward the extension and improvement of library research; to provide public program opportunities for describing and evaluating library research projects and for disseminating their findings; to inform and educate ALA members concerning research techniques and their usefulness in obtaining information with which to reach administrative decisions and solve problems; and expand the theoretical base of the field. LRRT also, serves as a forum for discussion and action on issues related to the literature and information needs for the field of library and information science.

Addressing unaccompanied youth housing and food insecurity through libraries

  • 1.  Addressing unaccompanied youth housing and food insecurity through libraries

    Posted Jul 01, 2022 11:58 AM

    Hello everyone, 

    I'm teaching a library school class this fall that focuses specifically on unaccompanied (i.e., youth without a parent/guardian) youth homelessness and libraries. If you've addressed unaccompanied youth housing/food insecurity through your library (public, academic, school, other), I'd love to hear from you. I'm interested in hearing about any work you've done: with local/national non-library partners, including partnerships, collaborations, sharing of information, sharing of resources, meetings, conversations, programs, etc.; on programs that are led by unhoused youth; or any other ways, big and small, that you've addressed this topic through your library.  

    Thank you! Julie Winkelstein,
