Librarians as first responders and social workers in libraries — 8 Comments

  1. Thank you. Great post.

    I know that in our homeless journey the library was a lifesaver. When our family had to stay in a shelter in Moncton they forced us to be out between 9 am and 5 pm. In February it is cold in Canada so we had no place to go. The library was nice and warm. The only problem was that they wouldn’t let us sleep. This was hard as the shelter is hard to sleep at. Yes you may be indoors but sleeping beside mentally unstable people who may be high on drugs is a risk few are willing to take. We survived 3 weeks there before we had to move on. I will always remember the library there though.

    Kudos on bringing this to light!

    Blessings,
