Home / Youth Services / Outreach & Family Engagement
ICfL supports the outreach and family engagement efforts of Idaho public, school, and tribal libraries by encouraging them to serve all segments of their community. ICfL supports libraries as they make changes to in-house programming, services, and spaces and as they offer outreach events and partnerships to reach underserved segments of children, families, and their caregivers.
These efforts can happen through program activities, staff continuing education, community and caregiver engagement, and topic-specific grant work. These programs and activities help families, and their children, feel welcome and supported inside the library, through both traditional and adaptive programming and updated programs and materials, as well as outside the library, through community events, neighborhood access to literacy information, and partner collaboration.
