Roam Your Community and Meet Them on Their Turf

Event Type: SWFLN Webinar
Date: 1/10/2018
Start Time: 10:00 AM
End Time: 11:00 AM
 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?

Learning Objectives: After this webinar, participants will be able to:
• Explain the value of roaming the community
• Propose activities which move the library out into it community
• Support the activities of other staff, who want to move beyond the physical walls of the library

Location: Web Based Training
