Are Books Your Brand? How Libraries Can Stay Relevant to Readers
The core mission of libraries – providing books for readers – is as relevant today as it was years ago. In fact, it’s what people overwhelmingly identify as THE reason for libraries. Formats might change, and library patrons might only visit the library virtually, but the library is still the place where readers go to find books. Libraries should embrace this role in their communities – and become “Centers for Readers.” But how?
The panel will discuss:
- Shifts in how people are using the library
- Examples of successful library programs and services for readers
- Strategies and tools for engaging communities of readers
