Build a new branch library by becoming a community service center?  Groceries at the library? Check out these recorded webinars highlighting innovative public library partnerships with local government and community organizations.
A Library Partnership = Neighborhood Resource Center, featuring the Alachua County Library District's The Library Partnership. Speaker: Chris Culp, Public Services Division Director in the Alachua County Library District. (Florida)
We Belong Here: Expanding Immigrant Access to Government and Community, featuring Hartford Public Library's The American Place. Speaker: Homa Naficy, Chief Adult Learning Officer in the Hartford Public Library. (Connecticut)
Baltimore's Virtual Supermarket: Grocery Delivery to Your Library or Community Site, featuring the Baltimarket partnership between the Baltimore City Health Department and the Enoch Pratt Free Library.

The archives and slides for the Webinars are now available at: http://lib2gov.org/webinars/spring-2015-webinars/spring-2015-webinars.

I was particularly impressed with the Baltimarket<http://www.baltimarket.org/virtual-supermarket/> grocery delivery program in Baltimore, Maryland. The coordinator, Laura Flamm, was eager to talk to other communities interested in starting programs to address "food desert" issues in urban and rural communities.
