You want to serve your community equitably and well, but you have endless possibilities and finite resources. How do you know which direction to go? Community-led planning is a strategy that invites community participation in service design and implementation by sharing power. Whether you’re creating a system-wide strategic plan, a single program, or anything in between, using community-led planning techniques can set you up for outstanding success. Discover the results of new research into how libraries can become more equitably community led. Then learn how to apply these concepts to create highly relevant, inclusive services for—and, more importantly, with—your community.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What it means to be authentically community-led, and why this benefits your library and community
  • How to apply evidence-based strategies to build your capacity for community-led planning
  • Real-world examples of how libraries have used community-led planning for successful outcomes
