This week Pratt Chat will be featuring posts by librarians and guest contributors about some of the great community outreach efforts the Library organizes.
Waverly Branch Bake Sale, Sept 8, 2012
Thanks to these Library programs, children and adults in daycares and at-risk neighborhoods can check out books and talk to a librarian, families have access to healthy food through their local branch, youth receive training in video and photography production, and more.
This is the first of many regular, in-depth series to be featured on Pratt Chat. We will be sharing six profiles of Library outreach programs over the course of this week. As posts become available, the links below will be activated.
