Three-quarters of the counties with the highest rates of food insecurity are in rural areas. This session will cover how public libraries feed America: 1) Distributing food at the library, 2) Teaching and supporting gardening, 3) Teaching how to prepare healthy food, and 4) Offering the library’s support to food programs (e.g. Farmers Markets). We will then go over how you can use the resources of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, including its Cooperative Extension, Summer Food Service, 4-H, and Master Gardener programs.

How do we connect customers with exactly what they need when the way they ask for something is open to many interpretations? Enter… the reference interview! The purpose of a reference interview is to find out what a customer wants so library staff can match the information need with the library’s resources.
