Upcoming Events

  • Town Hall on the Critical Role of Libraries

    March 4 | 2-3 p.m. ET

    The library's role in communities has become vastly different in the 21st century than originally conceived. Libraries serve as a public commons and a social innovator. They support digital literacy, food access, entrepreneurship and inclusion, and can serve as a policy lever to promote economic mobility. Libraries are essential to equity goals and the civic health of democracy in the United States. However, community members and stakeholders such as government leaders do not always know the extent of the work that libraries do and how they serve social and policy goals. This event is targeted to both libraries and local government leaders and will highlight what these shifts mean for the field itself, strategies for communicating this to stakeholders and the local community and how the library connects with local policy goals.
