Description: 

The United States has over 600,000 homeless people. Their needs range from a daily place to sleep to mental and medical care. While they sometimes can find a place to sleep, they are in a constant search for a place during the day. The library, with its mission of service, opening hours and welcoming nature is a logical place for the homeless to congregate. This program addresses the issues, challenges and presents best practices for serving the homeless in the library.
