Social Work in Public Libraries Virtual Forum Series

Join us for a series of interactive virtual forums, in which members of the PLA Social Worker Task Force will answer your questions related to social work in public libraries. This is an opportunity to learn from the experts and engage with your peers on social service issues facing public libraries today. Attendees are encouraged to share their experiences and ask questions throughout the session.
