Social Work and Libraries: Connections

Michigan

Kevin King

"Libraries help people find what they need. Peer navigators/social workers help people find the resources they need to succeed."

Background

Libraries are always looking for ways to serve better the community that they are a part of. A new service that libraries are adding to their repertoire is social workers. Social workers can provide additional resources that libraries cannot provide alone. They are also more knowledgeable about certain topics. This is a new direction that libraries are taking and it's one of great importance.
