Digital Transformation & Libraries: Participatory Culture Hubs

Positioning today’s libraries as community crossroads for prosperity is a nascent area for digital transformation. Few public resources are as “switched on” to the heartbeat of a community and its economic development than the library— and users don’t just want information, they want actionable intelligence. Our speakers share the insights gleaned from working with more than 30 library systems while experimenting with a library-friendly, purpose-built methodology to deepen the relationships between libraries and the communities they serve by designing and telling more impactful stories which help shape community dialog and library advocacy. Get ideas and insights to use in your library community!
