Deadline Extended: Call for Contributors - Libraries and Nonprofits:
Collaboration for the Public Good

About the Book

Libraries and Nonprofits: Collaboration for the Public Good (Library Juice
Press) will consider the range of partnerships entered into by all types of
libraries and nonprofits and will provide resources and best practices for
nurturing these collaborations. We are seeking domestic and international
case studies which highlight successful (or problematic) collaborations
between libraries and nonprofit organizations for inclusion in the book.
Case studies may address the following themes relating to nonprofit
organizations and library collaborations including (but not limited to):

* civic engagement
* public health
* social safety nets/social work
* arts and culture
* education/literacy
* environment/sustainability/food justice
* anti-racism
* disability rights
* legal aid/human rights
* housing/planning

Examples range from collaborations with financial literacy organizations to
provide free or low-cost tax preparation; legal aid organizations to
provide civic education and human rights workshops; literacy organizations
to provide storytime programs, ESL or tutoring services; or museums to
provide exhibitions, pop-up galleries, or STEAM programming.

How to Participate

Authors are invited to submit a case study proposal as an email attachment
in Word or PDF to librariesandnonprofits at gmail.com on or before Monday,
March 20, 2017. The case study proposal should be 300-500 words (Chicago
Style) clearly explaining the intent and details of the proposed case study
as it relates to the topics listed above. Proposed case studies should be
