  • Library Services to Latino Communities
    We work with public library clients who are at the initial stages of developing services for their Latino communities. We also work with clients who want to expand their services to Latino communities, concentrating on particular areas of service. This includes areas such as community analysis, collection development, programming for all ages, staff development, partnerships, etc.
  • Cultural Competency

  • Disaster Planning and Recovery
    When clients need to prepare library disaster and emergency response plans, we assist in the development of those plans. We review and critique existing disaster planning and response plans for clients. We also offer services for practicing emergency disaster response.
  • Executive Searches
