Make Your Library a Community Leader: Community Building through Civic Dialogue

Target Audience: Library directors, department heads and senior staff

Strategically position your library as a hub for community connections, civic involvement and collaboration utilizing a model that has successfully worked for many libraries, colleges, foundations, and other community organizations. This hands-on workshop will train participants in dialogue facilitation skills to strengthen partnerships, build effective teams across departments and organizations, and raise the profile of the library as a center for community life.

Presenters: Carolyn Anthony, director, Skokie (Ill.) Public Library; Adam Davis, director of training and publications for Project on Civic Reflection, Chicago, Ill.

At the end of this preconference, participants will:

  • Be able to select readings that will help a group explore a larger theme or issue;
  • Be able to engage participants in vigorous, respectful discussion of meaningful issues; and
  • Develop a plan for library-led civic reflection sessions with civic leaders, partnering organizations, youth groups, trustees or board members, volunteers, staff, or other groups within the library or the community.
