Transformation for Libraries: From EXCITE to a Futures School
Saturday, January 25, 2020
1:00 PM – 2:00 PM
Location: Room 204-C
With its successful EXCITE Transformation for Libraries program (https://libguides.ctstatelibrary.org/dld/EXCITE), the Connecticut State Library developed an experiential learning program that supported collaboration and innovation skills, resulting in community-responsive programs and services that reflect a culture of change in libraries. Now, the State Library is working with The Kedge Futures School (TFS) to offer a Learning-Unlearning-Relearning Through Strategic Foresight program. Focusing in on specific library issues, the three-day programs will help staff develop a futures mindset adaptable to changing environments. The Futures School’s strategic framework enables participants to continuously learn-unlearn-relearn to lead discussion and action in the transformation of libraries.
