Fall New Adult Committee Meetings

9/17/2018 – Embedded Librarianship
Embedded Librarianship is one of the most valuable tools to working with any community, and this is especially true when working with a younger demographic. We will review how to work with stakeholders in your building to build relationships with New Adults. We will also discuss where and how to embed yourselves with this demographic outside the library walls.

11/19/2018 – Programming Roundtable
Librarians gather to share New Adult Programs over coffee and light refreshments. Librarians will be asked to submit some materials in advance to create packets everyone can take with them.
