Community-Led Libraries Toolkit (2008)

Submitted by Devon Kerslake on June 22, 2016 - 3:39am

This document is the product of a national federally funded project that involved Vancouver, Regina, Halifax and Toronto Public Libraries. It was called the Working Together project and was intended to develop methods for libraries to work with socially excluded communities through a community development approach. The toolkit forms the basis for how Toronto Public Library staff are trained in Community Engagement.
