As the daughter of two librarians, I've been collaborating with school and the local public library for many years. An ongoing community-based partnership focusing on childhood healthy weight has taken place in our rural community for the past seven years. Currently, with my work as a Maine SNAP-Ed Nutrition Educator, I rely on my local librarians to provide many innovative resources and thoughtful insights. It's a mutually-beneficial and rich relationship.

@Quin Knox-- does your model community program include roles for the libraries as cooling centers-- any lessons to share with regions that are beginning to serve communities in this capacity (e.g., Amy Merck's article (August 9, 2019). U.S. Public Libraries Serve as Cooling Centers in Extreme Weather, available at: https://www.libraryjournal.com/?detailStory=US-Public-Libraries-Serve-as-Cooling-Centers-in-Extreme-Weather).

My research is on the Bibliotecas Publicas Moviles program in Colombia (a network of mobile libraries in rural communities most affected by armed conflict). I'm wondering what value you all see in connecting with counterparts abroad? Do you think those connections and relationships would be helpful to public libraries and health globally?
