IMLS has launched a new initiative aimed at assisting libraries and museums in developing a deeper understanding of their role as enablers of community vitality and co-creators of positive community change. Join IMLS Director Dr. Kathryn K. Matthew in this highly interactive session that will delve into what it means to be catalytic and to explore how institutions can best leverage federal investments and their own assets through collaboration. Two foundation leaders will also share their learnings about and approaches to achieving community impact.
