SACRAMENTO– Strengthening Community Connections Roundtable at Power of Partnerships Library Symposium

May 17, 2018 @ 3:00 am8:00 am


SACRAMENTO– Felicia Kelley, Project and Evaluation Director at California Humanities, and Michelle Gordon, Community Librarian at Fresno County Public Library, will present a 20 minute roundtable entitled “Strengthening Community Connections: Partnering to Promote Effective Programming” at the California Library Association’s 2018 Adult Services Symposiums: Power of Partnerships to be held at the Sacramento Central Library on May 17, 2018. Strengthening Community Connections: Partnering to Promote Effective Programming Community partnerships enable libraries to extend scarce resources, develop relevant and engaging programming, and engage hard-to-reach audiences. Last year, California Humanities’ Library Innovation Lab: Exploring New Ways of Engaging Immigrant Communities program, provided an opportunity for 10 library programmers to develop programs in partnership with immigrant communities. Michelle Gordon will give an overview of her work on this project, which resulted in a live Story Jam event at a downtown theater, a communal potluck and an art show, in partnership with local community organizations!   2018 ADULT SERVICES SYMPOSIUM: POWER OF PARTNERSHIPS Thursday, May 17, 2018 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM Sacramento Central Library – West Meeting Room 828 I Street (nearest cross street is 9th St) Sacramento, CA 95814  This event is part of the California Library Association’s Spring Fling series.
