Reframing Community Partnerships in Education provides both the theoretical framework as well as a practical guide to engage educators in interdisciplinary, inter-organizational, multicultural, and multi-generational work to improve the social fabric of communities. Using case examples of best practice, this book explores transformational practices for community development, community building, and civic engagement. Featuring "Community Learning Exchange" pedagogies adaptable to a wide range of contexts, this book encourages educators-through use of participatory practices and a collective leadership model-to build stronger communities and advance learning for all.
Librarians must know how to provide essential programs and services that make a difference for the people they serve if libraries are going to survive. Meeting Community Needs: A Practical Guide for Librarians shows librarians how to identify real needs, how to meet them with effective services and programs, and how to evaluate their success. When librarians can demonstrate the impact that effective library programs and services have on people's lives, their confidence and ability to argue that libraries are more than "unessential" or "ancillary" services will be strengthened.
