Abstract

Librarians can achieve better results for their communities when they learn to overcome thinking that holds them, and their communities back.

In this workshop, we’ll focus on the basic skills needed to enable that to happen, including listening closely, envisioning without restraint and implementing the resulting ideas while respecting current realities. Sessions will be interactive and engaging and attendees will leave with a new set of ideas and ways to use in reshaping their libraries.
