Symposium on the Future of Libraries
Public Libraries have been active supporters of workforce development in their communities - from offering free computer and internet access, training on digital skills and resume writing, online learning, and small business resources, and more recently career exploration through STEM programming and makerspaces. Increasingly, libraries at the state and local level have sought and gained formal recognition for their efforts, taking seats on committees, workforce development boards, and registering libraries as Workforce Connection Sites. This session shares tips and recommendations for who, what, where, and how to get started or leap forward in your own workforce development efforts.
