|About||Elevating the strategic role of the public library.|
As the premier membership organization of North America's leading public library systems and the organizations that serve them, the Urban Libraries Council (ULC) has spent more than 40 years enriching communities by strengthening and promoting the value of libraries as essential public assets.
ULC provides a forum for library leaders to share best practices and innovative ideas that inspire programs that support 21st century learning, a strong economy, and an active democracy. ULC programs are recognized for creating new frameworks that invigorate public libraries and their communities.
Urban Libraries Council, founded in 1971, is the voice for public libraries and the force that inspires them to evolve. ULC creates the tools, techniques and ideas to make ongoing improvements and upgrades in services and technology. ULC also speaks loudly and clearly about the value public libraries bring to communities, and secures funding for research that results in the development of new programs and services. By serving as a forum for library leadership, ULC produces innovative ideas and best practices that ensure community impact.
ULC is committed to three strategic focus areas:
— Education and Learning
— Digital Inclusion
— Healthy, Sustainable Communities
