Public libraries are the heart of open access to information and entertainment resources in their communities. They take as their mission to serve citizens from all corners of a community, and as institutions, they are more than just a building with dedicated people. Finding creative ways to reach citizens who are not aware of what the library has to offer, or who may be unable to access the programing and resources at a physical location, is an increasing challenge for modern librarians.

In this webinar, you'll hear from a diverse group of enterprising librarians who will discuss some of their strategies for reaching community members outside the library, including populations who are often disadvantaged and underserved. From programs at county jails, to housing offices and local businesses, learn from our panel of librarians about how they are collaborating with nontraditional community partners to bring access to all.
