Libraries Transforming Communities


Libraries Transforming Communities: Focus on Small and Rural Libraries is part of ALA’s longtime commitment to preparing library workers for the expanding role of libraries.

The initiative is offered in partnership with the Association for Rural & Small Libraries (ARSL).

This is the online home for Califa's megahub. Here, you'll find opportunities to connect with other members of the megahub, recordings from Califa's LTC Hubs webinars, and other resources.
