On Wednesday (Jan. 10), I gave a Webinar for the Southwest Florida Library Network (SWFLN) entitled " Roam Your Community and Meet Them on Their Turf." SWFLN makes their webinars available through YouTube, so this one is now available for you to view, if the topic is of interest to you.
Webinar Description: We’ve heard the refrains of eliminating the reference desk, embedded librarians, and the like. We also hear of the need to get out into our communities. Yet meeting our community members where they are – not where we are – is still a challenge. If we are free to move about our communities, and deliver services outside of the library, what might that look like? What innovative or imaginative twist can we use, which will spark the community’s attention and interaction?
Learning Objectives: After this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Explain the value of roaming the community
- Propose activities which move the library out into it community
- Support the activities of other staff, who want to move beyond the physical walls of the library
SWFLN normally has a sign language interpreter during a webinar, but one was not available on Wednesday. However, this webinar is captioned.
