Have you ever wondered what it would be like to implement library services and programming in a country in the Global South? Or, perhaps you’ve dreamed of starting your own nonprofit organization dedicated to building libraries around the world. Are you looking for a way to combining your interests in international travel and volunteering?
If any of the above sparks interest, join Milner Library on Tuesday, March 30 for a special talk by Debbie Chavez and Dee Winn of Libraries for the World.
