Panel of speakers
Since San Francisco Public Library became the first in the world to hire a full-time social worker in 2007, the interest in library-social work collaboration has grown exponentially. Urban, suburban, and rural libraries are creating scalable partnerships, from hosting interns to social service office hours to full-time hires. This panel of librarians and social service providers builds on a standing-room-only 2015 Conversation Starter on the same topic. We'll provide practical examples of successful collaborations, and we'll also discuss how these partnerships inspire new approaches to providing excellent library service. This session also ties into a book forthcoming from Libraries Unlimited.
