The story of libraries is a story of innovating through constant change and extreme challenges. A universal story of the evolution we all face. My passion is bringing together creative elements to craft inspiring futures in partnership. My experience started with the expansive example of libraries and applies to organizations wider afield.
The Library Future blog analyzes the elements guiding where libraries are heading: library creativity, technology directions, market trends, cultural and consumer elements, and library related innovations.
Library Future is a multiplier of library creativity to mirror how libraries are a multiplier of their community’s creativity and curiosity.
