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.

Panelists discuss their experiences, dramatize a recruitment event, and offer practical recruitment strategies.
