Presentation Overview: At the Rochester Public Library we’ve been working to become a welcoming place for every member of the community. But we’ve learned that we can’t be the welcoming place we want to be without taking a hard look at ourselves and dealing with some difficult truths. Audrey Betcher, Director, will share their journey.
