I posted this article in another discussion thread but will cross post it here as well:
It’s about a program between the Seattle Public Library and the King County Correctional Facility where incarcerated parents can sign up for workshops that will allow them to be filmed reading children’s stories that they can then send on to their children to watch. This definitely reminds me a lot of librarianship with a heart and having empathy in the profession by supporting incarcerated parents who want to share an intimate action with their children when they can’t physically be there.
@elizabetholson This is absolutely part of the heart-focused services I like to see. Thank you for sharing. I am speaking this afternoon for our SLA chapter and will include this. Thanks!!
