Opening Keynote – Community Engagement: Who’s Counting?
Libraries today are stepping up to the challenges of discerning critical needs in their communities. Meeting these challenges requires leveraging the power of the community it serves by building trusted relationships, providing a space for patrons to feel heard and represented, and using qualitative and quantitative information to develop transformative programming. Are you collecting and using your data to leverage program development, fostering critical partnerships and building sustainable funding that will lead to thriving communities? Participants will learn the power and impact of successful community engagement and data tracking. Don’t leave opportunities on the table!
