This guide demonstrates everything from how to set up programming involving sign language for all ages, to dealing with and paying interpreters, and from publicizing programs to the public and within the deaf community, to evaluating and improving the library's sign language collection. Kathy MacMillan's impressive understanding and knowledge of the deaf community and the importance of sign language-as well as her exceptional handling of the numerous erroneous myths about deafness and sign language that are, unfortunately, still often current-make this handbook indispensable for all library personnel looking to reach out to the deaf community.
