Short Title
Guides for Community Discussions: National Issues Forums (NIF) and Other
Summary

Learn about resources to bring your community together to talk in productive, civil and interesting ways.

Description

Explore issue books, videos, and other guides available to help librarians bring their communities together to talk in productive, civil, and interesting ways. A growing and diverse array of nonpartisan, non-agenda-driven materials about important public issues are available from the National Issues Forum Institute and other sources.

The presenters review and show examples of available materials; describe how these guides can support engaging library programs; and give examples of how librarians have used them in their communities.

This webinar -- the fifth in a civic engagement series produced by Programming Librarian -- is sponsored by the ALA Center for Civic Life and the ALA Cultural Communities Fund.
