Social Justice Services
Social Justice Services provides library programs, services, and materials to marginalized populations with reduced access to traditional libraries. We currently offer services at Santa Rita and Glenn Dyer Jails, Juvenile Justice Center and Camp Wilmont Sweeney, Family Justice Center via District Attorney’s Office, Abode Sunrise Village Emergency Homeless Shelter, and the Fremont Family Resource Center. Social Justice Services also coordinates the Library’s Summer Lunch @ the Library Program and is continuing to seek out new opportunities to serve these communities. The Library is currently seeking two librarians, one (1) full-time librarian and one (1) part-time librarian with a passion for working with underserved and marginalized populations, who have strong readers advisory skills, and excel in planning library programs. Librarians serving in Social Justice Services will need to be able to follow policies and procedures in secure environments, demonstrate an ability to remain calm and clear-headed in intense environments, and work in partnership with sworn and non-sworn staff across all departments served.
