Library Services to the Homeless

The find of the week is the video Think about the homeless http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqzItJkS4Ho 

During the last weeks, I’ve spent quiet a few hours researching to find articles, guideliness and more on how to serve the homeless. All for a conference for my library staff. I found Brandy and Ray J singing on that video and they made my day. Ah, the workshop was a hit.

Here are few links to more information about homeless and libraries:
