The webinar series aims to share the many ways PolicyMap can elevate the offerings of public libraries in California for the betterment of their communities.

Empowering California Libraries: Strategies for Strengthening Support for Children, Youth, and Families through SDOH Insights

In this webinar, explicitly tailored for California State Public Libraries, join us to uncover innovative strategies for enhancing support for your library district’s children, youth, and families.

Learn how to create comprehensive visualizations that pinpoint neighborhoods within your library district requiring additional resources using multi-layer maps. Gain insights into areas where interventions can make a meaningful impact on the lives of children, youth, and families. We’ll identify partners and stakeholders to help allocate resources effectively.

Most of the session will cover social determinants of health data and how it can shape your library’s impact. Attendees will learn how to download critical health data specific to the branches within your library district. This valuable information will allow you to tailor your services for maximum community benefit and positively impact the well-being of children, youth, and families across California.
