How Libraries Can Transform Communities
In episode nine of Together, We’re Better, Building Our Future Community Engagement Manager Brandon Morris hosts a conversation with Zander Miller (Kenosha Public Library Digital Strategy Librarian), Barb Brattin (Kenosha Public Library Director) and Cindy Fesemyer (State Library Consultant: Adult & Community Services) as they discuss the Wisconsin Libraries Transforming Communities cohort, a state-level community engagement training conducted by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction's Division for Libraries and Technology in partnership with the American Library Association.
When asked how Building Our Future was identified as a partner for this project, Barb Brattin explains, “It was very clear if you know anything about Building Our Future, community engagement is a very large part of what they do. The partnership was already conducting the same community outreach around the topic of student success in our city, so it seemed like a natural fit to put these two organizations together.”
