After meeting as part of the first cohort in the American Library Association’s Libraries Transforming Communities initiative, three librarians from three different sized library systems will share their experience getting out of the library and engaging with their communities. By the end of the session, attendees will understand why libraries should adopt this type of work, learn strategies for how to do it, and leave with techniques to make community engagement part of their regular library routine.
