The Eastham Library as a Climate Resilience Hub
As climate change makes extreme weather worse and less predictable, emergency services are and will be increasingly overstretched. The Climate Resilience Hub Program provides relief by empowering local institutions to better prepare community members for what is coming and ideally share the work on behalf of their communities. CREW’s Hubs hope to make communities more resilient by connecting the power of local networks with emergency management structures, technological support, and informational resources. A key part of community resilience is social resilience, which hubs help build through conversations, connections, and cultivation of trust within their community.
