Free Webinar: The Economic Impact of Library Innovation

Includes a Live Event on 04/01/2020 at 1:00 PM (EDT)

Libraries have long been valuable community resources, but today’s innovative services mean modern libraries yield huge returns on investment, presenting community leaders with a tremendous opportunity. What do modern libraries offer? Join us for a 30-minute webinar to see how innovative libraries that provide non-traditional services, connect to civic engagement, respond to community need, and co-locate services produce quantifiable economic impact. It’s all about aligning services and intersecting delivery with everyday community life.  

This webinar is complimentary thanks to the sponsorship of an ICMA Strategic Partner who will have access to registration information.
