LAMBDA is an acronym for Library Anchor Models for Bridging Diversity Achievement. LAMBDA work to provide education, training, workshops, and support materials to support library staff members who serve LGBTQ homeless youth.
Funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), LAMBDA is a partnership with the University of Tennessee’s School of Information Sciences and the Center for Literacy, Education & Employment (CLEE).
Library Anchor Models for Bridging Diversity Achievements (LAMBDA) works with the San Diego County Libraries and San Francisco Public Library in California, along with the Clinch River Public Library and Ocoee Public Library in Tennessee to provide education, training, workshops, and support materials that align with the IMLS goal of providing continuing education and “improve the knowledge, skills, and abilities” of library staff who are interested in creating programs that develop and improve services to homeless LGBTQA+ youth.
