M3: Looking Back, Moving Forward: BC Public Libraries Supporting Reconciliation in their Communities

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Is your library interested in supporting reconciliation in your community but doesn’t know where to begin? Join us for a report on reconciliation-based activities shared by large and small public libraries around the province. This session will also include specific insights and lessons learned throughout the process of planning and executing a large-scale community event. You'll walk away inspired to begin your own initiative through collections, programs and events, outreach, staff training, policy and more.

Presented with support from the Friends of the Prince George Public Library.
