Digital community engagement is becoming an increasingly integral part in the vision of libraries today. Now more than ever libraries are finding themselves at the center of local content creation and discovery. Whether it is hosting a patron art contest, championing local writers, sharing forgotten community histories, or anywhere in between, the tools that libraries use to conduct these programs matter. In this session we’ll hear directly from libraries who are championing unique local content initiatives like bringing local history to life, celebrating homegrown music, supporting burgeoning artists, and more. 

Join this webinar hosted by BiblioLabs and Library Journal to:
-    Learn how libraries are engaging with and supporting local creatives
-    Discover how libraries are succeeding at collaborative local history projects
-    Discuss how your library can launch a digital community collection
