Supporting the unique needs of veteran and military-affiliated library patrons 

The Libraries and Veterans National Forum is intended to engage library workers from all types of libraries who are actively engaged in working with the veteran and military communities. In addition to attending sessions at the Forum, participants will contribute to an online toolkit for working with the veteran and military communities in libraries.

The Libraries and Veterans National Forum will take place on June 8th & 9th, 2020. Travel costs will be subsidized by the IMLS grant.
