The American Library Association’s Office for Diversity enlisted 35 early-career librarians of color to develop a recruitment brand and create marketing materials geared toward 15- to 29-year-olds from underrepresented groups. For the past two years, these recruiters have traveled to education and career fairs across the country engaging with the target audience about careers in librarianship. Panelists discuss their experiences, dramatize a recruitment event, and offer practical recruitment strategies.
