Attendees will become familiar with free, openly-accessible resources for serving adult learners, the Adult Literacy through Libraries Action Agenda and its companion online course. The Action Agenda is an innovative call to action that outlines recommendations in seven key priority areas: Collection Development, Technology and Digital Literacy, Collaboration and Strategic Partnerships, Professional Development and Graduate Education, Community Planning and Program Evaluation, Raising Awareness and Influencing Policy, and Sustainability. The session will include an introduction to the Action Agenda, the newly-launched course, and supporting resources that will guide libraries through creating and implementing their own adult literacy action plans.
