Libraries
  • Librarians Guide to Homelessness – a book and website offering information and education to assist librarians working with patrons experiencing homelessness
  • Libraries Putting Social Workers on Staff (Sun Journal, August 10, 2019)
  • How Our Libraries Can Help The Homeless (Sun, September 19, 2018) – highlighting the work of the Toronto Public Library
  • The Public – Trailer (2019) – a feature length film starring Emilio Estevez and Alec Baldwin.  What begins as an act of civil disobedience becomes a stand-off with police and library officials when a conscientious librarian turns the Cincinnati Public Library into an impromptu homeless shelter for one night during the most brutal cold snap in recent Cincinnati history.
