About The Savannah

The Savannah is an online child safety portal designed and developed by Nonprofit Risk Management Center in collaboration with the New York Public Library. The goal of The Savannah is to promote awareness and vigilance for the issue of protecting children and ensuring the safety of all children at Library facilities and enrolled in Library programs and activities.

The Savannah is designed for all types of users, including those who are new to the topic of child safety and those who are only looking for a refresher. The Savannah currently offers five risk management courses on child safety, which are available for all Library staff, volunteers and other service providers. The site also hosts the Library’s new and comprehensive Child Safety Guidelines and other resources.
