Tina Walker, Keene Memorial Library Director, will share the who, what, how, and why of the many community partnerships we have developed. We have spent over 2 years analyzing, planning and implementing outreach in Fremont and the surrounding communities that have helped to increase awareness of our library services and community importance. Some of the partnerships you might look at and say "how does that fit the library" but you can be presently surprised by how well some of these easily fit into our collaboration plans. The main message is "don’t knock it til you try it". We will share some wonderful success stories and how they are making an impact on the future of the library.

Civic engagement matters! As librarians, our role in the 2020 Census is amplified this time around. In March of 2020, U.S. residents will not only receive traditional paper forms from the Census Bureau, but they will also have the option of online response. Patrons can fill out the census using their home computers, their smartphones, or by stopping by the local library and using a public computer. How can we properly prepare our library communities for this new option? Librarians can learn and review the basic facts about the census; we can provide informed outreach to our library communities; and we can know where to go for assistance outside of our libraries. Tune in to this webinar to find out more!
