Dear Fellow Librarians,

Title: By the People, For the People: Creating Community Profiles
Time: Jan 31, 2020 03:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada)
Join Zoom Meeting:
Westminster Public Library has taken a hyper-local focus and created innovative strategies to satisfy the needs of all patrons in our service area. Explore how to create a data-driven community profile and how to use profiles to advocate for inclusive collections, programs, reference and readers’ advisory services, and outreach that represent the needs of a diverse community. Take away the tools and resources to create your own profiles.
