Feedback form is now closed.
We often hear that libraries are the heart of their community and are a trusted organization that can bring diverse people together to learn and grow. But how does this happen and what are examples of ways libraries are doing this every day? The State Library of North Carolina invites you to hear Community Connections grant recipients from public and academic libraries as they discuss how they created programs that celebrated their cultural heritage and brought together community members of all ages and backgrounds to participate in interactive library programming. Panelists: Laurie Johnston (Burke County Public Libraries), Maegan Wilson (Wayne County Public Libraries), Callie Coward (University of North Carolina - Greensboro), Brian Clossey (Wake Technical Community College).
