This event has passed.

View this webinar to explore the concept of "Whole Person Librarianship" and to learn how a range of social work approaches can be applied to improve library services. We invite you to look at all aspects of your library through a social service lens, including policies, spaces, community partnerships, and programming. Additionally, we discuss the amazing benefits and possibilities that exist when libraries collaborate with social workers who can bring expertise and capacity to the community through the library. You will leave knowing how to conduct a community needs assessment and how to identify resources and social services you can provide through your library. You’ll explore new ideas and goals to incorporate within your strategic plan, and gain the confidence necessary to advocate for whole person services at your library.

This webinar was hosted in collaboration with the Association for Rural and Small Libraries.

Presented by: Ashley Stewart, MSW, Library Director, Caseyville Public Library District (IL)
