Hunger, Homelessness & Poverty Task Force
In 1990, the American Library Association adopted Policy 61 (Library Services for Poor People). This policy was developed to ensure that libraries are accessible and useful to low-income citizens and to encourage a deeper understanding of poverty’s dimensions, its causes, and ways it can be ended. In 1996, members of the Social Responsibilities Round Table formed the Hunger, Homelessness & Poverty Task Force to promote and implement Policy 61 and to raise awareness of poverty issues.
