In an effort to revamp their nonfiction collection and programs for adults, Riverview Library endeavored to use authentic community engagement techniques to discover the needs and interests of the West Side community. From community lead listening sessions, to sharing surveys, to data interpretation, to asking participants to respond to their findings, Riverview staff engaged the community throughout the entire process. In this session, Riverview staff will discuss what authentic community engagement is and what they learned throughout this process, including their successes, failures, plans for next time, and the joy and gratitude they felt participating in this work.
