Children participating in a fun library program

Developing Inclusive Children’s Library Programs

Children’s library programs are among the most vibrant and beloved library services. They connect kids and families; support literacy, academic achievement, and career exploration; and help close opportunity gaps—plus, they’re fun! To make sure all children can benefit from library programs, librarians need and want to make our youth programs highly inclusive. What steps can librarians take to help all kids and families feel welcome and included?  Center Youth Voice One of the most impactful ways to make programming for youth as inclusive as possible is to engage the young people themselves in making decisions. This helps ensure programs are responsive to the cultures, identities, abilities, and experiences of youth in your community. To maximize inclusion, seek out ways to center youth voice that are appropriate and helpful for children’s age and the context.  What does it mean to center youth voice? A seminal model for understanding how youth can meaningfully participate in programming decisions is Hart’s Ladder of Children’s Participation: From Tokenism to Citizenship (1992). It has since been reimagined by other scholars, including a hub-and-spoke model created by Phil Treseder in his 1997 book Empowering Children & Young People (see figure).  At the level of “assigned but informed,”

Reproductive Rights and the Contraceptive Revolution: A Historical Controversy from Issues & Controversies in History

Should contraception be legal and easily accessible? Be sure to check out Issues & Controversies in History’s complete and unbiased coverage of this issue. Learn more about the issue and check out a sample of the pro/con arguments on both sides below. THE ISSUE Throughout the 19th century, Americans used birth control with increasing frequency in order to limit family size. Yet various old and new laws made many forms of contraception illegal. The Comstock Act of 1873 even prohibited the sending of information about birth control through the U.S. mail until 1929. As oral contraceptives became available in the 1960s and the “sexual revolution” ignited, controversy grew. Should birth control be available to all women? Or should some—or all—types of contraception be illegal? And what should the role of physicians be with regard to family planning? Issues & Controversies in History links this pro/con article to rich related resources that enhance the debate. Students and researchers can delve into primary sources that provide context, a topic-specific timeline, a bibliography, and a thought-provoking “What if…” section that explores what might have happened had contraception become legal across states more quickly. Plus, discussion questions are provided to inspire critical thinking and
