Background: In September 2017, MLS conducted a survey of the interest of Massachusetts library directors to partner with MLS to facilitate public library/social work partnerships. Over 50 library directors responded to the survey, and over half of the respondents expressed interest to collaborate with us. As a result of the survey, we decided to broaden the scope of this project from social work to social service partnerships.
The agenda of the forum:
