Powered Libraries: 7 Success Stories highlights the forward-thinking innovation happening in seven unique libraries – from a private tribal library striving to retain a dying language to an out-of-this world informational outpost perched high in the Davis Mountains. Meet the members of a tiny community with big hearts at Texas’ second-smallest public library (measuring at only 720-square feet!) and climb aboard a book bus that measures success in smiles per gallon. Powered Libraries shines a light on the future-ready leaders who have successfully implemented public-facing practices to enrich, engage, and empower the diverse members of their communities. Librarians will be inspired and walk away with fresh ideas. This documentary, in its entirety, will premiere at ALA Midwinter.
