NLS Operations Alert


No. 21-49


DATE         :   July 8, 2021

TO             :   Network Libraries

FROM        :   Kristen Fernekes, Head, Communications and Outreach Section

SUBJECT  :   Small-group meetings about outreach resources and strategies



The Communications and Outreach Section at NLS is always interested in hearing from our network libraries regarding their outreach strategies and activities in order to best understand what works, what hasn’t, and how we can better support you in these efforts.


With that in mind, we are planning a series of small-group meetings on these topics. In the long term, we’ll be sharing more information on outreach on the national level and will seek to learn more about the work you’re doing locally across the country.


In order to promote conversation and input, we would like to keep our groups small. I ask that you please send me the names, titles, and contact email for one or two staff members at your library who work on outreach and public engagement.


Based on this list, will be sending out invitations and agendas later this summer for our meetings. Working with my colleague Amanda Mita, the head of NLS’s Reference Section, our first topic of discussion will be print and collateral resources.


We look forward to speaking with you soon.
