As libraries seek to redefine themselves in a new information age, libraries must develop strategies for engaging with the community. Traditional programs and services are no longer sufficient; libraries must be creative in building community relationships to help frame positive community growth. Learn how three diverse library systems met the challenge of engaging with their communities to create dynamic connections and develop meaningful partnerships that added value to the library AND the community.
This one-hour interactive session will begin with a brief exploration of how libraries fit into a larger lifelong learning landscape and will encourage discussion among participants to determine how members of library staff can immediately work toward expanding involvement in lifelong learning efforts that serve their communities.

What happens at your library when something doesn’t go according to plan? Do you or your colleagues find yourselves:
Apologizing and promising not to let that happen again?
Pointing out the circumstances that were beyond your control?
Worrying about how this setback might affect your budget or your career?
Wishing that other people had done more to support you?
Or just feeling generally down and discouraged?
