Our beloved organization is only as good as its members. Each one of you out there makes REFORMA move and happen. During the weekends when I have some free time, I like to scroll through our REFORMANET listserv, and I am always so proud of our members when I see uplifting and encouraging messages and posts. Whether it is someone giving advice on collection development, or others having a professional discussion on the latest Latinx author that is causing a vibe, the listserv is where it is happening.

Glendale is a diverse city, so the we strive to be inclusive and offer equal access to all our communities as much as possible, and that’s why Glendale Library, Arts & Culture’s (GLAC) and the Southern California Library Cooperative’s created the Be The Change series, which is focused on: Inclusion – Diversity – Equity – Antiracism. Be The Change events will build collective understanding of systemic racism, elevate the voices and stories of Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC), and inspire our community to be the change.

“Creative” is one word to describe what the staff members at the San Francisco Public Library (SFPL) have done to maintain library services, effectively pivoting their skills to leverage the resources available to them amid the many challenges that this pandemic constantly brings. Among the many examples of that creative pivoting is what SFPL was able to do to celebrate Latino Hispanic Heritage Month and address the needs of San Franciscans.
