On Monday, October 17, ULC President and CEO Susan Benton will moderate a featured panel session, "Libraries + Schools + Communities = Powerful Programming for Family Learning," at the National Center for Families Learning's (NCFL) annual Families Learning Summit in Detroit, Michigan.

This featured session will showcase how libraries, schools and community-based organizations work together all year to help families learn together and engage with their communities. Find out how public library leaders, school leaders and partners in three communities are providing opportunities for families to learn and serve together throughout the year via Family Service Learning and digital- and Maker- influenced blended learning approaches. Hear about the ways in which public libraries are providing engagement opportunities for all families — including disadvantaged parents and children — with a two-generation, family-focused approach. Engage with the panel as they share experiences and strategies that will benefit your community's understanding and leveraging of these partnerships. Brought to the Summit by the Urban Libraries Council and NCFL, this session is sponsored by Better World Books and builds on concepts highlighted in the recently published Leadership Brief: Libraries Supporting Family Learning.
