Trust and relationship building are at the core of community engagement. Trust in libraries blooms when we bring services outside of the library, build relationships with residents and organizations, and foster change agents by leveraging resident assets. Using a school district partnership, formation of a Latina/o community group, and development of library programming as case studies, the speaker will present strategies to connect your Latina/o communities. Presentation includes challenges, barriers, and successes.


This webinar is a follow-up to one presented in October 2018, "(Re)Building Latina/o Outreach: Steps to Engaging Your Community." If you did not attend the first webinar, you can view the archive here:
