Increasingly libraries across the country are seeing a need to provide social services to the populations they serve. Many libraries are starting to work more closely with social service agencies in their communities and some libraries have hired social workers as part of their staff. The panel will provide insights from three area libraries and their experiences in extending their reach to address the social service needs in their community. After the presentations there will be time to ask questions.
