Editor’s Note: Each week, we reflect on the top articles, blog posts, tweets, news, thoughts, and other tidbits we’ve found interesting or useful. Enjoy!
What keeps you awake at night? What do you want for your kids? What do you wish you knew more about? What do you enjoy? These are questions that library consultants Joan Frye Williams and George Needham say are effective for community engagement. Instead of asking people questions about the library (e.g. Would you come to X program? What do you want to see the library do in the future?), Williams and Needham say libraries should ask people about themselves. This is all contained in a webinar (which I think is perfectly on point!) that I came across this week in one of my classes.
