Chicago is the perfect place to remember the origins of social work and continue work towards additional social justice efforts. Our commitment to community engagement in the library profession has a connection to many historical social reform efforts. Reflecting on the settlement house movement see how the beginnings of the social work profession lead into the role of the library as a change agent in the community today. The connection between social work and libraries is not new and continues to evolve. How do libraries commit to social justice efforts and make the most of our mission.
