In September 2017, staff at Hennepin County Library - Minneapolis Central formed the Advisory Group on Homelessness. The group, comprised of Minneapolis Central Library patrons who are currently or have recently been homeless, meets twice monthly to inform the Library on how to better meet the unique needs of these patrons. The group has been involved in transforming services at the library, including building a collection of resources; creating channels for communication between patrons, administration and security; and even increasing access to the Library on Sunday mornings. In this session, attendees will learn about the history of the group, its successes, its challenges and steps that they can take to support their own community of patrons experiencing homelessness.
