Welcome to the new CLA Community Led Libraries Services Network, created through CLA. The terms of reference for this group can be found at:
This blog is meant to be an open blog – where anyone who is a member of the CLA network can share information to make our libraries the inclusive institutions they are meant to be.
The blog is currently available for anyone on the internet to view – and I hope that our messages and content posted on the blog will allow for this open dialogue to continue.
The community-led approach to library service planning is a relatively new approach for librarians to use when working with community. Therefore, the discussions which will hopefully take place on this blog, should allow not only members of the network to share information to support initiatives taking place within their respective workplaces, but also those contemplating adapting or testing these approaches with library staff and their local communities.
I strongly encourage the members of the network to be pro-active and contribute to the blog.
It will only be a successful tool if we contribute to it!
