Inclusion, Diversity,

“Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” 

-James Baldwin 

Georgia Public Library Service's IDEA Committee developed this website to explore the ways libraries can improve equity and accessibility through programming, collections, policy, outreach, and training. This website has been designed to be concise, current, and curated with the best resources on inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility.  We invite you to take a look, and hope the site can serve as a tool to inform and inspire.
