As a librarian you are probably aware of the poverty
that exists within your community, but do you have a firm understanding on how
it affects your service and staff? 
Generational Poverty is a culture that contains its own belief systems
and hidden rules of behavior.  By
understanding this culture and breaking down barriers, you will begin to see
ways that your library can be a community leader on the path to breaking the
cycle of poverty. 

This webinar is designed to be the beginning of a
journey that will enable you and your staff to better serve your patrons and
gain a greater understanding of a nationwide concern.

In this webinar, participants will learn:


  • The
    hidden rules of poverty, middle class, wealthy

  • Understand
    the difficulty of moving beyond poverty
