Can you help spread the word to library leaders about this new opportunity?

Dear visionary library colleagues, I’m writing to you because I’m hoping you can help me spread the word about an exciting opportunity for public libraries around the world to participate in a 6-month experimental program to become more fully OF, BY, and FOR their communities. We’ve just launched this cross-sector, global program as part of a larger movement called OFBYFOR ALL. While we have many public-serving organizations interested – from museums to parks to theaters to senior centers – we have far fewer libraries than we would like in the mix. We want library voices front and center in the development of this work. Can you help libraries take the lead by sending the announcement below to 5 library directors, movers, or shakers this week?    Or, if you prefer to tweet, you can copy and paste this: Is your library working to become OF, BY, and FOR your community? Check out this amazing opportunity to accelerate your work & join a global movement: https://www.ofbyforall.org/updates/now-recruiting-first-wave Questions welcome, shares greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Thank you for bringing energy to this work from day one. Today, we offer an opportunity for you to strengthen your organization and help shape this movement as a founding research partner in our First Wave research program.  Tell Me More In the First Wave,...
