Public libraries must connect to their local communities. Considering modern funding constraints, this can be best done by collaborating and partnering with other local organizations. Partnerships and Collaborations in Public Library Communities: Resources and Solutions shows how these partnerships can be cultivated through projects, programming, funding, and extending the library s presence through unique avenues. With a diverse set of contributions from state, local, educational, penal, and governmental libraries that actively pursue community involvement in a myriad of ways and through varying levels of commitment, the examples presented in this book will give librarians a better understanding of what might be possible for their unique requirements and limitations. This publication focuses on practical applications such as navigating an era of budget cuts and sparse resources to post-project analysis of programs that did not work effectively alongside success stories and ideas for the future.
