GMR Webinar: Don’t do it alone! Starting, sustaining, and assessing partnership-driven health programming at your library

Posted by on November 19th, 2018 Posted in: Continuing Education, Public Health, Public Libraries

Date: December 4, 2018

Time: 12 PM ET / 11 AM CT

Guest Speaker: Dr. Noah Lenstra, MLIS, Founder and Director of Let’s Move in Libraries

Description: The U.S Institute of Museum and Library Services recently “challenged museums and libraries to transform how they collaborate with their communities.” This webinar focuses on how pubic libraries answer this call to action by partnering with institutions, groups, and individuals in their communities to offer high-impact health programming. Based on research conducted as part of Let’s Move in Libraries, his ongoing blog series published by the ALA Public Programs Office on partnership-driven health programming, and as part of a new project focused on how libraries contribute to food justice, Dr. Lenstra will provide an overview of strategies and tactics libraries use to start, sustain, and assess partnership-driven health programming. Particular attention will be given to small and rural libraries.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Finding the time to partner
  • Identifying partners
  • Joining community coalitions & task-forces
  • Leveraging partnerships to secure external funding and resources for your library.

These topics will be illustrated through in-depth examples of actual public libraries from across the country engaged in ongoing partnership-driven health programming.

Registration: For registration and more information, please visit the class instance page.
