In public libraries, offering educational adult programming can be a struggle. Building attendance and participation is often an uphill battle. However, meaningful learning experiences and community engagement for adults remain a vital core library service.

This webinar will look at the San Jose Public Library’s grant funded three-part series of adult programs on the subject of climate change and its impact on the community. Part book club and part science café, the program incorporated companion books, short film showings, guest speakers, giveaways, and community discussion. Presenters will discuss the program structure, themes, as well as outcomes, challenges and scalability. There will be a discussion of community partnerships, promotion and marketing as well as demonstration of the Pushing the Limits development materials which are freely available via Infopeople’s Niche Academy modules is external).

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Be able to identify three strategies to make climate change information and discussions accessible and appealing to a diverse audience.
  • Identify potential community partners for climate change programs
  • Understand how the community climate café program could be scalable or replicable
  • Be familiar with Pushing the Limits development materials which are freely available
