The American Library Association (ALA) has selected Red Hook Public Library as one of 10 public libraries nationwide that will undergo an intensive 18-month, team-based community engagement training program as part of the Libraries Transforming Communities (LTC) Public Innovators Cohort.
 
Through in-person training, webinars and coaching—valued at $50,000— Red Hook Public Library will learn new community engagement techniques and apply them to challenges in the Red Hook area. The library will also receive an $8,000 cash grant to help cover the cost of new community-engagement work.
 
Libraries Transforming Communities is made possible through a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
