Opportunities to Participate in Global Library Development (ISLD) Interest Group

Description: The IRRT's International Sustainable Library Development (ISLD) Interest Group presented an interactive program on "Opportunities to Participate in Global Library Development." From becoming a Peace Corps volunteer to organizing a program in your library, there are a wide range of opportunities to participate in global library development. Speakers introduced attendees to some of these possibilities, including a project to build libraries for street kids and other children affected by HIV/AIDS in Lusaka, Zambia, public library development in Rwanda, Peace Corps volunteer library projects and the Global Libraries Outreach Campaign focused on public libraries throughout the world. Following the presentations, attendees discussed  these and additional projects that welcomed participation.
