Promise of Libraries Transforming Communities

December 19, 2013 at 3:13 am Leave a comment

The American Library Association’s The Promise of Libraries Transforming Communities is a groundbreaking libraries-as-change-agents initiative. ALA has partnered with the Harwood Institute for Public Innovation to provide librarians with the tools and training they need to lead community engagement and innovation.

The Harwood Institute has a clearly articulated vision of “turning outward,”  supported by a tested practice rooted in community conversation and ownership that emphasizes shifting the institutional and professional orientation of libraries and librarians from internal to external.
