What are Your Libraries Civic/Community Engagement Activities?

July 19, 2011 at 9:08 am Leave a comment

The ALA Center for Civic Life is surveying libraries to find out more about their civic/community engagement activities. Public, school, academic, government, state and special libraries are undertaking exciting programs that engage their communities in civic life. Please fill out the survey posted at http://connect.ala.org/node/151545 and return it to us by the end of July. We have included a sample survey so you can get a better sense of the type of efforts of interest. We will use the data to map the civic work going on throughout the country and highlight your important work. The map will help others find you and link you to similarly minded groups in your area. Thanks.
