What happens when you mix public library staff, high school students, architects, and STEM curriculum? You get project-based learning that leads to students designing a hybrid public library/farmer’s market facility!

Learn from speakers who have been immersed in a year-long IMLS National Leader Planning Grant, which has involved teaching students about human centered service design and exploring libraries and farms in field trips, and hear how this innovative project engaged teens along with community partners.

Learning Outcomes

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will:

  • Gain skills to engage our community and maintain ongoing relationships with community partners;
  • Better understand the curriculum development process and be better prepared to partner in the future; and
  • Recognize the connections between agriculture, architecture, and sustainable communities.

Who Should Attend

This webinar is open to everyone interested in exploring issues around teen services, community partnerships, and STEM programming. It will be particularly relevant to staff at small or rural public libraries, or those with an interest in agriculture and/or sustainability.
