PLA Webinar - Conflict as Opportunity: Library Restorative Practices for Youth

Pima County (AZ) Public Library (PCPL) has radically shifted its approach toward interacting with youth in violation of the library’s Customer Code of Conduct. Using restorative justice practices, PCPL created a justice board with community partners to facilitate more mindful approaches to incidents involving youth, focusing on creating opportunities for growth and engagement rather than barriers to library access. This webinar explores the praxis behind this organizational culture shift including the successes and challenges faced by staff.

This is the first of two free webinars with content from programs originally scheduled for the PLA 2018 Conference. The two programs were cancelled due to weather-related travel difficulties that prevented the presenters' arrival in Philadelphia for the conference. The second free webinar, "Your Neighbor is a Writer: Curating a Local E-book Collection," is scheduled for May 29. Separate registration is required for each webinar.


Learning Outcomes

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will:

  • Gain a greater understanding of the structure necessary to implement a program such as this at their library; and
  • Understand the concept of restorative practice and its application to libraries.

Who Should Attend

This webinar is open to everyone interested in gaining a better understanding of the concept of restorative justice and its potential impacts on public libraries’ interactions with youth. Those who planned to attend the cancelled PLA 2018 program of the same titleare especially encouraged to attend.
