It seeks to introduce libraries to various dialogue and deliberation approaches, enabling libraries to foster conversation and lead change in their communities.

LTC: Models for Change is the second phase of ALA's Libraries Transforming Communities initiative. Learn more about the first phase of the project, offered in 2014-15 in partnership with The Harwood Institute for Public Innovation.
