Let’s Move in Libraries - April Virtual Conferences

During the month of April, Let’s Move in Libraries will host a series of conversations on community collaboration and community health. Registration is now open!

Each conversation features 2-4 librarians sharing their experiences working collaboratively with others to promote community health. After the discussion you’re invited to stay in the room for a half hour open conversation about that week’s topic. Each conversation takes place on a Thursday in April, 2023. Recordings will be shared on the Let’s Move in Libraries YouTube channel.

This event will also feature the launch of a Toolkit you can use to inject new energy into your health programs and partnerships. Our goal in this event is to continue to build momentum and knowledge around the critical topic of community collaboration.
