Public libraries serve many critical roles often overlooked or not recognized by leaders within the community. From playing a key role in education, driving economic development initiatives, and providing space for teens, immigrants, seniors and many other special groups, libraries are a safe and trusted space for every individual and group within the community. In this interactive session, ULC and its library members engage participants in a lively discussion on libraries as an anchor for community engagement and share innovative partnerships to further civic discourse.
