Community Engagement Training at VPL

VPL has just finished rolling out one phase of community engagement training to our staff. Over the past three weeks, we’ve had 350 staff attend a 2-hour workshop that invited staff to look at where we’ve been, what we’re doing now, and what else we can be doing. In the spirit of the community-led approach, the workshop relied heavily on group conversations and learning from each other.

The foundation of the training is an internal guide, Connecting the Dots: A Guidebook for Working with Community. Designed to appeal to staff at all levels of the organization, it’s filled with stories and pictures. The guide is available online at



  1. Thank you VPL for sharing (as always). Your professional generosity is appreciated by your colleagues across the country.
