The Latino population of many states in the Pacific Northwest is over 20% and growing. How can the public library best engage and serve this community? Library Director Jenny Berg will tell the story of five years of increasing involvement with Latinos in McMinnville, Oregon, a town of 34,000. Utilizing available resources, making a case for engagement, and working with partners, funders, and staff the McMinnville Public Library is a city department leading the way in building strong relationships with Latinos. This will be a fun and interactive program where attendees can exchange ideas about how they might better form cross cultural connections. 
>Make the case for engagement outside of the library walls
