Librarian Meet Up
Monday, March 14
9:30AM - 10:30AM
110 E 2nd St
Do YOU library? Connect with some of the nation’s most creative, forward-thinking library professionals and supporters to find out how to leverage libraries as a platform to fuel your passions and successes. By gathering with other thought-leaders in this informal setting, you’ll learn how libraries (and librarians) are fostering entrepreneurship, transforming their spaces into showrooms for prototyping and discovery, and helping to build more knowledgeable communities. Libraries have evolved into places that support ideas, creativity and exploration through participation, where users take the reigns to define their own experience. This informal meet-up is designed the same way: Bring your ideas, questions, challenges and good spirits no matter from which industry you hail to learn how libraries are not the same old shhh.
