In this volume, school, public, academic, and special librarians and library and information science faculty from the US share their creative solutions to build successful programs that meet customer needs while expanding the library's scope in the community. The 66 short chapters describe different outreach programs, including senior, youth, and correctional facility outreach; special collections; use of local media and book festivals; classroom and diversity outreach; and community group collaboration. Examples include memoir writing, library docent programs, teen theater and student athlete outreach, library art galleries, reading programs, archives, programs for English language learners, computer literacy services, and partnering with an employment center.
