Moving Your Services into Your Community (webinar)

Competency: Public Services Competencies

Sub-Category: Building Relationships with Community
Organizations


We've heard the refrains of
eliminating the reference desk, embedded librarians, and the like. We also hear
of the need to get out into our communities. Yet meeting our community members
where they are
- not
where we are - is still a challenge.


If we are free to move about our
communities, and deliver services outside of the library, what might that look
like? What innovative or imaginative twist can we use, which will spark the
community's attention and interaction? How can we assure that our efforts are
accomplished in both safe and respectful ways?


After this webinar, participants will be able
to:

  • Explain the value of moving services into your community

  • Propose activities which move the library out into it community

  • Consider safe and community needs in creating a safe space outside
    of the library
