On Thursday June 20th the MOSAIC committee of RASD will be hosting our Annual Breakfast at the Suffolk Cooperative Library System. This year’s topic will be Programming to Promote Diversity. Award-winning Author, Poet, Educator, Cultural Programmer Adriana Devers uses the power of words to promote the diverse voices of Long Island. She will provide inspiration and knowledge on how libraries can diversify their programming with innovative ideas to engage new patrons, enhance diversity and expand inclusion. Devers will inspire us to uplift, and celebrate our unique communities, while addressing social issues that continue to affect society at large.

MOSAIC Meeting

New members are always welcome!  

MOSAIC Mission: The purpose of the committee is to promote cultural awareness and develop strategies for effective outreach services.” In adhering to this, the Committee meets four to seven times a year to discuss any and all issues that arise within the libraries that affect service to our diverse communities. These issues can range from collection development, to programming ideas, to creating documents in non-English fonts, to where to send a non-English speaking person for immigration information. The Committee would like to think of itself as a clearinghouse on best practices in serving diverse communities. One of our main goals is to disseminate and share information in a collegial fashion.
