Register now for webinar on the future of public libraries

Public libraries now confront formidable challenges.  The digital transformation of all media affects our resources, services, staff and programs, while changes in users and their needs, the growth of competitive Internet services, and financial stringencies add complexity.

A range of possible responses will be presented as contrasting visions: physical vs. virtual library; individual vs. community focus; portal vs. archive service; collection vs. creative approach.
