We're so excited to bring you another Library 2.018 free web conference on
Wednesday, October 17, 2018! This time, the conference topic is "Social
Crisis Management in a 21st Century World." 


We'll discuss different ways libraries are responding to challenges of
social and economic disparity, ranging from homelessness and hunger to
substance abuse and racial equity. You'll learn about programs and services
developed to address some of these social crises and the outcomes. 


The conference will be held online from noon to 3 p.m. Pacific Time and is
free to attend. Please register
<https://librarysocialcrisis.eventbrite.com/>  to join the live conference
and/or get access to the recordings. 


Like our other Library 2.018 conferences, we will start off with a panel
presentation and then break out into concurrent crowd-sourced sessions.
We'll then come back together for final thoughts.

.       Patty Wong, Director of Library Services for the Santa Monica Public
Library in California

.       Ryan Dowd, Executive Director of Hesed House in Chicago, Illinois
