What is the Network?

The Rural Library Network addresses educational inequities, cradle to career by driving resources to rural libraries across America. The Network is a growing forum engaging libraries of all types including public libraries, school libraries, and community college libraries working to advance educational outcomes of rural students, so that all rural students succeed.


Our webinars, called Conversations for Action (CFA), enable members to learn best practices from experts in place based approaches to community change. Partners for Rural Impact has committed to creating opportunities for individuals working in rural libraries to share ideas, experiences and practical advice to improve educational opportunities in rural communities. Periodically, 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 access the webinar by clicking the image below. Or, you can go to our YouTube channel.
