Descriptions

Disorganized staff or committee meetings got you down? Would you like to add value to your library’s services by facilitating meetings for community groups such as Rotary or a school’s Parent-Teacher Organization? Do you view your library as a campus or community hub for in-depth conversations about issues of the day? This series of workshops will help you move your career forward, position your libraries as central to your community’s well-being, and develop skills to promote intra-community understanding. We are delighted to be working once more with the dynamic and talented team at Philadelphia’s community engagement and design firm P’unk Ave.

After participating in this series of workshops, library staff members will be able to:

  • Facilitate meetings for community and stakeholder groups such as Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions, local PTO and PTA
