Description: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
