Community Relations

community relations

The library belongs to your community and the more they feel that sense of ownership, the more your community will know about your programming and services. From media relations to outreach campaigns, find resources and tips on maximizing your community relations to sustain your library. Help build connections with your community by joining local agency and organization boards or committees, bringing the library further out into your community.
