Libraries Foster Community Engagement is a Member Initiative Group of the American Library Association. The group provides an ALA organizational home for members interested in the work of library-led community engagement. It is a community of practice where participants share experiences facilitating public forums, fostering community and civic engagement, and leading change in communities.
Through online forums and in-person meetings at ALA Annual Conferences and Midwinter Meetings, participants learn about professional development opportunities and library experiences related to convening, dialogue facilitation, forum moderation, deliberative dialogue and local partnerships.
