Marigold Library System recently received a grant from Alberta Municipal Affairs, enabling them to provide library services to on-reserve populations. This session focuses on the process of building relationships with First Nations communities. We will discuss how buy-in from member libraries was encouraged and recount how barriers were overcome to extend public library service in ways it had not been before.
- Best practices for engaging on-reserve populations, overcoming barriers, and encouraging library staff buy-in
- A regional library system perspective on extending library services
- Outreach ideas
