Community Librarianship

Posted on November 8, 2013. Filed under: Libraries and Librarians | Tags: , |

Community librarianship, also called embedded librarianship, aims to get librarians out into the community where they can help the local population wherever they need information. For some public libraries, that means staff members attending local government and chamber of commerce meetings and serving as researchers for special projects. In other situations, librarians visit schools, senior centers, and nonprofit organizations to provide books or volunteer in other ways.
