Do You Know Where Your Librarian Is? Building Relationships Outside the Building
Thursday, March 13
11:00 AM–12:00 PM
This panel program highlights the real-world successes of the three libraries with embedded librarianship, a powerful way to tune into the needs of the community and build relationships. We’ll further the conversation on expanding the vision of library services and the changing role of librarians, and demonstrate how embedded librarians strengthen the civic engagement of entire communities at the same time that they transform libraries.
