Radical Innovation in Digital Justice by Public Libraries

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As trusted community resources for media and information, public libraries are a natural partner in the movement for digital equity. The pre-conference will examine how libraries have helped other institutions innovate and scale strategies to foster digital equity. With an eye towards the work of Libraries Without Borders and its partners, the discussion will focus on new partnership models between libraries, small businesses, and legal, medical, and financial service providers. 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 small businesses, like laundromats, into the work of digital inclusion. Panel discussions will focus on tools and strategies that practitioners can use with local organizations, foundations, and businesses. Attendees will emerge with these skills and a network of peers eager for future collaborations.
