The Rural Library Network

What is the Network?

The Rural Library Network is a cradle-to-career initiative that provides participants the opportunity to grow knowledge via online webinars and training in core principles of place-based work. It also offers a forum to grow relationships and connect with practitioners working in libraries across America’s rural communities. Membership to the network is free.


Conversations For Action

Our monthly webinars, called Conversations for Action, enable members to learn best practices from experts in place based approaches to community change. Partners for Education and Save the Children have committed to creating opportunities for individuals working in rural libraries to share ideas, experiences and practical advice to improve educational opportunities in rural communities. Each month, we will host a webinar featuring a conversation with people committed to serving the needs of rural students.

Each webinar is recorded and made available on our YouTube channel. You can watch all the uploaded webinars below:
