Bibliotecas Para La Gente presents: RecaLibrar! 2018, Grass Roots Library and Outreach Services in Latino and Spanish Speaking Communities. 
Join us for our 2nd bi-annual conference at the lovely San Leandro Public Library to learn from speakers who are on the front lines of changing-making community building. 
In 2018 we are working hard to bring you the work of activists, librarians, and more from our region and beyond to see how they have answered the call in their own communities. This will be an empowering day to re-calibrate, connect with our peers, reflect, and rejoice!
