Welcome to the LUCY webpage!

Librarianship Upgrades for Children and Youth Services funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Laura Bush 21th century program. LUCY offered multifaceted continuing education opportunities focusing on multicultural materials, technology, issues, and services which were directly relevant to youth services librarians. These continuing education opportunities offered through LUCY provided diversity training, workshops, and classes to professional children's and young adult librarians, school librarians, paraprofessionals, and all those who worked with children or young adults in libraries throughout Virginia. Additional information on LUCY activities, staff, and the non-selective bibliography of multicultural titles are available through the links on the left side of the page. 

The LUCY team is working on measuring the program's impact over the last four years.  Please help us out by taking our survey here!


As of June 30, 2013 the LUCY grant has ended, therefore this website will no longer be updated except for the bibliographies (which will be updated monthly).
