Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh and Peer-to-Peer University will develop resources for public libraries that empower volunteers to organize and facilitate volunteer-led adult learning programs. The team will develop a model to help a public library of any size support adult learning in a range of topics that are responsive to community needs without relying on staff or paid presenters to envision, plan, develop, and execute programs. This model will be applicable to adult learning and will encompass a variety of formats, such as group skill-shares and discussion groups, peer-facilitated learning circles, and one-on-one mentoring relationships. The resources developed will enable libraries to leverage abundant learning materials available online. It will be piloted within partner library systems representing various sizes and geographic areas: Detroit Public Library, MI; Onondaga County Public Library, NY; and Multnomah County Library, OR.
