  16. But... America’s “Most Liveable City” newpittsburghcourieronline.com ● 2 to 3 times as many African- Americans living in poverty as whites ● Preschool and private school enrollment lowest for African- Americans ● The typical white student attends a school that’s 90% white with little poverty among classmates ● The typical African-American student goes to a school where half students also African-American and poor

  18. What can libraries do?
  19. Libraries can bridge the equity gap by: ● providing caring, non-parental, non- teacher adults to encourage youth ○ Though it doesn’t have to be limited to youth ● create spaces for informal learning and exploration of interests

  23. View the library as a place where literacy and learning are supported and encouraged.

  30. The Thick of It: Program Design YOUmedia & The Labs guidelines.
  31. Institutional Buy-inMission To Engage our Community in Literacy and Learning Vision Statement Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh will inspire in the citizens of our region respect and responsibility for life-long learning, citizenship, and civic participation
  32. Design for Mentorship Intentional Design of programs and services will help insure mentoring becomes an explicit part of library service
  33. The Labs & Mentorship Mentors in The Labs were hired based on the YOUmedia (Chicago Public Library) model This model marks a shift toward public library workers identifying as educators first.
  34. Mentoring’s Effect "I'd like to thank-you for always listening to me and being such a supportive person. When I'm at the library I always feel free to be me, because of the amazing positive energy you put into the space. My favorite project is still the sock cat with light up eyes. I still have mine. Through Outside the Lines I grew to have more confidence in myself and see my self worth because of all the new things I was trying and people I was meeting."
  35. Designing for Multiple Literacies = Designing for Diversity (This can mean: racial diversity of staff, diversity of interests represented in staff and programming, and on and on…)
  36. Design for Multiple Literacies to Support Mentors ● Strategic Plan ● Staff training through project-based learning sessions ○ Both make mentorship a part of library culture Learning with The Labs: Soldering 101
  37. It’s scalable!
