Understands the social, political and economic context in which
the library exists


From the opiate
and methamphetamine crisis, to the effects of generational poverty, to the
struggles our local schools have with their funding, not to mention our own
library funding issues, it would be easy to start to believe that we only have
negatives, and that our world is in a downward spiral.

Can a library truly make a difference in all
of these areas?  How does the library fit
into what has been traditionally thought of as "social work"? 

Join this webinar and for an uplifting
conversation about hope and the role of libraries in today's ever changing
world.  Be part of the conversation and
take away a fresh outlook on the work we do every day.

In this webinar,
participants will:

  • Explore social
    issues and their effect on libraries
  • Learn ways to
    positively embrace both challenges and change
  • Focus on
    defining the issues that matter to libraries
  • Create plans to
    refresh staff and tackle community problems with leadership and light
