Event description

Description

Communities have challenges.

Libraries can help.

The Harwood Public Innovators Lab is built to help you and your organization learn what it means to Turn Outward – to use the community, not your conference room, as your reference point for choices and action. Join us and the American Library Association (ALA) for a 2.5-day intensive training specially designed for library professionals, trustees, community partners and supporters like you.

You will leave the Lab as the next class in a group of over 4,000 library professionals turned Public Innovators. You'll receive resources to continue your practice beyond the Lab—the Harwood Action Plan, Toolkit, and our Community Conversation Workbook.

That Lab itself is a combination of discussions, hands-on-activities, and breakout groups where we focus on key areas in which you need to make choices, and how to approach those decisions. Learn how to:

  • Tap your library's natural value as an authentic center of community engagement
  • Surface people’s shared aspirations and help bring them to life
  • Turn Outward and become a steward of public knowledge
  • Convene and lead productive and insightful community conversations

“The Public Innovators Lab was moving, challenging and world-rocking — in the best possible way.”

— Erica Freudenberger, Director, Red Hook Public Library (NY)

For your convenience, we have secured a room block at the Hilton Garden Inn Atlanta Downtown. After registering for the event, you will receive the link to our special room block rate!
