More about the Outreach Round Table: The ORT provides a framework for
information sharing, continuing education and moral support for library workers
currently providing outreach services; and to offer opportunities for
networking and encouragement to libraries wishing to expand or develop library
outreach services. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to library
service to people of all ages who can no longer use a library facility due to
either a physical or mental impairment, people who live in rural or remote area
without a library, non-English speakers, the incarcerated, the homeless, and
low-literacy adults.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
