Lighthouse Sessions 2020

It is clear that policymakers should acknowledge the need for a deeper quality of citizen engagement at all levels. In this session we explore how libraries can be democratic hubs.
As libraries begin to reopen, a key challenge is how to articulate their value. How can they continue to communicate such value to policymakers, the public and practitioners?
