Impact of Library Public Programs

The Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) has awarded ALA a planning grant to support the one year development of a comprehensive research agenda and five-year implementation plan to understand and document the characteristics, audiences, outcomes, and value of public programming in libraries at a national level. 

The Assessing the National Impact of Library Public Programs project aims to support strategic long-term advancement of understanding of how library programs increase broad public access to knowledge and foster support for lifelong learners across diverse geographic, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds, including those with special needs or those underserved by services in their communities. 

BDC staff participated in the initial survey of programming librarians. 

Stay tuned ...
