Keynote: Libraries & Perpetual Learning

8:45 a.m. - 9:45 a.m.
Lee Rainie, Director, Internet and Technology Research, Pew Research Center Author of the book "Networked: The New Social Operating System"

Nearly three-quarters of Americans describe themselves as “lifelong learners.” More than two-thirds learn for personal enrichment and enjoyment. More than half are professional learners who are anxious to upgrade their skills and prepare for the next-wave workforce. Rainie presents new survey findings about the vast numbers of Americans who want and need to learn things and how libraries fit into their experiences and expectations. He discusses how digital resources inside and outside the library are crucial for many people and what that means for the ways librarians should think about serving these knowledge-society citizens.
