Marketing Libraries: What the not-for-profits can learn from the lots-of-profits
Building a digitally inclusive community requires buy-in and engagement from all sectors, with libraries playing a lead role alongside government, schools, businesses, and individuals. Using the principles and steps in Building Digital Communities: A Framework for Action, Dodge City, Kansas is engaging stakeholders, aligning interests, setting community-wide goals and developing demonstration projects. Join us for a conversation with the Dodge City leadership team discussing why they have prioritized a community-wide initiative, the challenges of working with multiple sectors (with diverging goals!), what they expect from the project and what they recommend to others considering a similar path.
Presented by: Jamie LaRue, director, Coble Galston, business librarian and Amy Long, Parker library manager, Douglas County Libraries (CO)
