- Engage Your Community when Planning for Change
Your role in your public library elevates you to a community leader and change agent. No matter your formal title or the size of your library, you have the opportunity to meet and evolve with your communities’ changing needs. As a central learning and gathering space, your library supports the needs of a wide range of community needs for children, businesses, tribal communities, seniors, English language learners, the list goes on. With such a range of stakeholders in your community, how do you learn about your communities’ evolving needs and then plan for change?
