Summary When planning services, collections, and programs for children and teens from diverse populations, many librarians and teachers fail to fully embrace the fully spectrum of diversity within the United States as well as the scope of considerations for developing inclusive library and classroom practices. These essays help you understand that your offerings should represent all of the cultural expressions that are often overlooked.
