Using Impact Evidence for Advocacy

Friday 13 August  9:30 – 11:30 | Room G3

How do public libraries impact their communities?  How do libraries use evidence of their impact to advocate for public libraries?  You are invited to join the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Global Libraries initiative and its grantees for an exciting and fun session to learn more.  During this session, representatives from Botswana, Chile, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland will share how they have worked with public libraries to demonstrate the valuable role they play in their communities.
