Community-centered libraries engage staff in promoting and supporting positive change in their local communities. However, the steps for authentically engaging the community in problem-solving are often unclear. In this webinar, participants will be introduced to the SOAR (Strengths, Opportunities, Aspirations, Results) Model and learn how to use it as a facilitation tool for conducting meetings with their library communities. The role of digital programming as a SOAR response to the challenges of COVID-19 will be explored, with presenters and participants alike sharing their successes and challenges.
Presented by: Sarah Giskin, Becky Shaknovich, Suzin Weber, Shahadah Abdul-Rashid, and Lynn Williamson
