definition of the word partnershipsDo you want to help ensure people are connected to the social service resources they want and need? Would you like to develop partnerships in the community to extend the library’s reach? Do you want to identify other organizations in your community, with whom the library can work together towards common goals?

The library is a hub of information and community. You know there are critical needs that exist – for housing, food, mental health services, and more, yet most libraries are not staffed or funded to provide social services to their community on their own. Partnering with outside organizations to provide these services makes a lot of sense. This course will help you identify, nurture and grow partnerships that will positively impact your community.

Seats are still available for Developing Partnerships to Provide Social Services, taught by Sonia Falcon and Tara Williamson. This 4-week online course starts on May 4, 2021. Sign up now!
