A talk "Community engagement - library outreach in the 21st century", organized by HKLA and sponsored by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, will be held on 12 July 2012.

Date: 12 July 2012
Time: 6:30 pm
Venue: Activitiy Room 1, Hong Kong Central Library

This talk examines different outreach strategies for libraries in Canada, United States and China. It analyzes the possibilities and concerns of community outreach and argues that community outreach by libraries best serves the increasing significance of community engagement. Drawing on the successful cases of the outreach program at the University of Toronto Libraries and Toronto Public Library, Dr. Jack Leong demonstrates that libraries can effectively connect resources and enable interactions between among diverse communities, including scholars and the public. The engagement and interaction lead ultimately to preserve and generate knowledge and understanding. The discussion of the diverse outreach activities in this talk provides guidance and suggestions for librarians who are interested in outreach and community engagement of any scale and nature. Cases are draw from a wide spectrum and are particularly strong in the setting of large academic libraries, special collections and programming for multicultural populations.
