Welcome to Community-Centered Libraries

Harnessing the Power of Data to Equitably Serve Your Community

Why Community-Centered Libraries?

Do you find it challenging to determine what programs and services are most relevant for your community? Or, when gathering statistics about your community, are you concerned that some people aren’t represented? Community-Centered Libraries: Using Data to Equitably Serve Your Community is an opportunity for California public library workers to gain tools and skills to use data to better serve all members of their community.

Learning Opportunities

The Community-Centered Libraries project has something for everyone! Webinars, learning cohorts, in-person workshops, and free access to PolicyMap. This community space provides an opportunity to connect with other California library workers, brainstorm, ask questions, and share your perspectives about using data to equitably serve your community.
