Developing Partnerships to Provide Social Services
Tuesday, March 8
Tuesday, March 8, 12:00 p.m. – Monday, April 4, 2022, 4:30 p.m.
- Do 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.
Course Description: This four-week course will include two 60-minute interactive online sessions:
- Wednesday, March 9th @noon Pacific Time
- Wednesday, March 23rd @noon Pacific Time
The online sessions will be recorded for those who cannot attend during the scheduled time.
In addition to the scheduled sessions, the instructors will provide resources and guidance that will help you build a foundational understanding of this important topic. During the course, you will participate in discussion forums, with an opportunity to share your experiences and questions, alongside others who are interested in discovering how-to develop partnerships for social services. Through assignments, you will apply the concepts to your own library and community.
