Traditionally, library services rely on the ingenuity and community connections of staff. As libraries move into a new era, it is more important than ever to build on these connections by forming and maintaining smart partnerships within the communities libraries serve. These partnerships require that library staff move from being an expert to a facilitator and staff taking on the role of thought partner in the implementation of initiatives that impact youth in their community.
