Library Vibe Squad: Bringing Student Voice into Your Space with a Leadership Team

Want to bring more student voice into your library space? Start a library student leadership team! Our Library Vibe Squad helps plan programs, displays, outreach, etc. I’ll share about the process of getting started, planning meetings, divvying up responsibilities and creating space for student voice. Students from our leadership team will be at the session to share their own experiences. No matter where you’re at with student leadership in your library, there will be something for you here.
