The Free Library of Philadelphia and the Chattanooga Public Library invites you to join the IFLA Public Libraries Section for a Satellite Conference in lovely Philadelphia, PA, August 10-12, 2016.
The Conference has two themes. The first day is focused on social justice and literacy building skill sets; we've invited the Dean of the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Social Policy and Practice to start the day with a keynote speech.
On day 2, we will be focusing on libraries and their role in civic engagement, civic literacies, and our evolving role in the Civic Commons space. Carol Coletta, formerly of the Knight Foundation and now a Senior Fellow of the Kresge Foundation, will be joining us as the keynote for this day of sessions. We will wrap up day 2 with some hard work in our Culinary Literacy Center.
