Presenter: Barbara Alvarez

Do you want to develop more meaningful relationships with your library’s community? Would you like to create sustainable engagement with local businesses, organizations and library users?

Enter storytelling- it’s not just for kids! The people who use the library and live in the community have tons of unique perspectives and messages to share- they just need an outlet. Libraries can play an integral role by giving those stories a platform. Storytelling is a powerful tool because it builds trust and understanding. From podcasts, videos, livestreams and unique programming, there are many ways that librarians can utilize the power of storytelling to build transformational community relationships.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Be able to describe what storytelling is and why it matters to library communities
  • Be able to identify 3 different ways that libraries can collaborate with communities to tell and share stories
  • Be able to understand different technology tools and resources to share stories with the wider community

This webinar will be of interest to: Public, academic and special librarians who would like to connect to their communities through storytelling.
