Webinar: Libraries Contributing to Meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Title: Libraries Contributing to Meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals: a call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and improve the lives and prospects of everyone, everywhere

Description: Join our first webinar highlighting inspiring stories from libraries in Australia, France and Germany presented by leaders of library associations in those countries. We will discuss how libraries are helping communities meet the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the websites they have created to share these stories. We hope the webinar encourages US libraries to connect the dots between their existing services and the way they are already meeting the SDGs.
