Symposium on the Future of Libraries
As the nation becomes increasingly divided, communities need conversation more than ever. Libraries are rising to the challenge, bringing people together to tackle challenges large and small. Join us for a discussion with three library leaders – representing a public, an academic and a school library – about how libraries are evolving and becoming leaders in the community engagement/facilitation/dialogue space, and this shift’s impact on the professional and personal practices of library staff. Attendees will also learn about Libraries Transforming Communities (LTC): Community Engagement Models for Change, a new ALA initiative that will offer free community engagement training to libraries of all sizes and types starting in early 2017.
Meeting Type: Symposium on the Future of Libraries
Cost: Included with full conference registration.
