Library Community Partnerships - presented by Kelly Krieg-Sigman


Monday, February 17 - 1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. EST

As public libraries continue to strive towards deeper connections with their community, effective and mutually beneficial partnerships are essential.  Unfortunately, all too often, instead of being “made in heaven,” many partnerships feel more like “shotgun marriages.”  This session will examine the ingredients necessary for healthy, mutually beneficial, and sustainable library-community partnerships, and provide a number of suggestions as to where to start.

(No need to travel to the Indiana State Library, you can attend from the comfort of your own library!)


The Indiana State Library will make all reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy all of its programs, services, and activities.  If you require an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication, or a modification of policies or procedures to participate in this program, service or activity of the Indiana State Library, please contact Kara Cleveland,, 317-232-3718,  advance of the webinar/program in which you would like to participate.  Alternatively, you can contact Faye Brookins, the Indiana State Library’s ADA Coordinator ( or 317-233-1184).  Notice of a needed accommodation should be provided as soon as possible to allow time for the State Library to arrange for the accommodation; however, notice of a needed accommodation must be provided to one of the above contacts no later than 48 hours in advance.
