Library 2.022 Urban Librarianship: Embracing Challenges and Opportunities through Innovation, Leadership and Best Practices

Urban libraries are uniquely positioned to support the resiliency of their local communities and to deliver vital services to help individuals live their best lives. Urban libraries have a unique impact on the well-being of their communities and are essential agents to positively transform those communities and people as anchor institutions and community hubs, and as partners with local government, private sector, nonprofits, and other community-based organizations for collective impact.
Urban librarianship increasingly encompasses having to address many of society’s challenges through the people served. This situates urban libraries in the epicenter of the communities they serve and also presents new opportunities that may impact them at even greater levels.
During this three-hour mini-conference, attendees will learn ideas, innovations, tools, and techniques that will help all library leaders in their work with people and their communities.
This is a free conference, and it will be recorded. All registrants will get links to the recorded sessions.
