Leading in Times of Crisis: A Conversation with Ferguson Library Director Scott Bonner

Scott Bonner

Director, Ferguson Municipal Public Library District, St. Louis, Missouri


1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Room: MCP - W183c

The fatal shooting of Michael Brown on August 9, 2014, brought chaos to Ferguson, Mo., a city of about 21,000 near St. Louis. The ensuing protests divided residents and caused schools and city services to shut down -- but the library stayed open, providing a much-needed safe haven for the community. Join Scott Bonner, director of the Ferguson Municipal Public Library and its sole full-time librarian, as he shares his experiences, strategies and lessons learned.
