SANTA CLARA– California Humanities’ Library Innovation Lab participants are presenting on a panel at the California Library Association Conference entitled Library Innovation Lab: Humanities Programming for Immigrant Communities on Saturday, November 10, 2018, 2:00 PM – 2:45 PM at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Description: What do calligraphy, storytelling, Lotería, Play-Doh and virtual reality have in common? They’re all products of the Library Innovation Lab year-long program to engage immigrant communities through the humanities. The inaugural Library Innovation Lab in 2017 included design thinking training as well as funding for humanities-based programming targeted towards immigrant communities. The panel will provide information about the process of the grant program and give examples of the resulting library programming.
