Sno-Isle Curates Community Conversations
Sno-Isle Libraries, a system that covers two counties in the state of Washington, has been organizing a series of civic discussions called Issues That Matter. Charles Pratt and Sonia Gustafson, who work on the project, explain how library staffers have been working together to poll community members about their concerns, to find panelists who can address the topics, to secure diverse locations, and, of course, to promote the events to draw large crowds. Organizers are using PLA’s Project Outcome model to measure their success.
