Social Services Symposium

"I'm a librarian, but I need social worker skills."   
"I want to help this patron find a place to sleep and eat tonight."   
"I don't know what to do to help this family."

Sound familiar?  If so, you may be interested in the upcoming Social Services Symposium for Public Library Staff. Regional speakers from the social services field will discuss and dissect the complicated issues that public services staff experience on a daily basis, will offer practical suggestions, and will address the need for self-care when serving vulnerable communities. 

Registration and information about the symposium is available here
