In this episode, we talk with Loida Garcia-Febo – a Puerto Rican American librarian, International Library Consultant expert in library services to diverse populations and human rights and the 2018-2019 President of the American Library Association – about the importance of getting out of the library and into communities, mentoring staff, in particular nurturing Black and Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC), and equipping all with empathy to better serve library communities. Trust is an important factor in doing Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Anti-Racism work in libraries, as Garcia-Febo explains. Library staff need to work alongside community partners outside of the library to build that trust.
