As a library worker, you see the impacts of library programs every day -- from young people developing skills through summer reading, to older adults finding solace through homebound outreach programs. But while the library world knows anecdotally how important programs are, the field lacks sufficient data on whether, and how, these efforts are working. For the past two years, the ALA Public Programs Office and a team of researchers have surveyed thousands of library professionals about their work. In the process, we have unearthed some fascinating findings about public programs and the skill set of the library staffers who run them. Join leaders of the IMLS-funded National Impact of Library Public Programs Assessment (NILPPA) for highlights from our white paper and next steps.
