Library partnerships just make sense

Zola Maddison /

Library staff across the country are establishing strong partnerships with their local workforce agencies in order to meet the needs of their communities. At the federal level, these partnerships are proving just as strong. Last week, the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) briefed Washington policy makers about their partnership with the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Employment and Training Administration (ETA). The briefing included a panel of state and local library and workforce officials who had powerful stories to tell about how they meet the needs of job seekers by working together.
