As trusted community resources for media and information, public libraries are a natural partner in the movement for digital equity. This pre-conference workshop will examine private enterprise and public institutions, namely libraries, can serve as incubators for innovation and scale strategies that advance digital equity. With an eye towards the work of Libraries Without Borders and its partners, this discussion will touch upon new partnership models that bring together libraries, businesses, financial institutions, legal aid and health providers, and the public.

In Part 1, attendees will examine how library partnerships have launched conversations on the intersection of digital equity and health, legal, and financial literacy.

In Part 2, attendees will explore how library programs have broadened the notion of “public-private partnerships” by bringing in businesses, like laundromats, into the work of digital inclusion.

These panel discussions will focus on tools and strategies that practitioners can use to partner with community-based organizations, foundations, businesses, financial institutions, and the public. The goal is for attendees to emerge with concrete, tangible and actionable next steps — a new model for PPPs— and a community of practice to support future collaborations.
