10:30 AM - 11:10 AM ET | The Just Transition
If the pandemic had any silver lining, it brought systemic economic and societal inequities into focus, and the time for change is long overdue. Rebekkah Smith Aldrich, Executive Director of the Mid-Hudson Library System, will discuss the opportunities library leaders have to build community resilience in light of recent events and co-create a new future for their library and their community using regenerative thinking.

Introduced by: Meredith Schwartz, Editor-in-Chief, Library Journal
11:15 AM - 11:55 AM ET | Two Panels Running Concurrently
What’s Next for Collection Strategy and Readers Advisory
Shifting so much of collection budgets and so many checkouts to e-content has reopened questions about what patrons want and how publishers and libraries can sustainably work together. Meanwhile, closed browsing has forced librarians to develop creative solutions to enable backlist discovery and connect readers to new authors. Hear how some libraries are reinventing these core functions to meet the evolving needs of both leadership and the community.
Lisa Rosenblum, Executive Director, King County Library System
Kelvin Watson, Director of Libraries, Broward County Libraries Division
Moderator: Neal Wyatt, Reviews Editor, Library Journal
See Your Library Through Your Patron’s Eyes
The Library Land Project looks at public libraries from the patron's perspective. They will share their experiences, as well as a new rubric, now in beta testing, to assess the library experience from the point of view of a user walking through the door for the first time. The Project is seeking thoughts and input as it refines its process and broadens its reach to public library branches all across America.
Greg Peverill-Conti & Adam Zand, Co-Founders, Library Land Project
Introduced by: Lisa Peet, Library Journal News Editor
12:00 PM - 12:40 PM ET | Planning for Equity
Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) mission statements and teams are only the first step to achieving long-term results. To make EDI a core library priority, it must be operationalized, measured—and funded. Hear from library leaders who are incorporating quantifiable EDI goals into their budgets, strategic plans, and partnerships.
Elsworth Carmen, Library Director, Iowa City Public Library
Michael Lambert, City Librarian, City and County of San Francisco
Moderator: Meredith Schwartz, Editor-in-Chief, Library Journal
12:40 PM - 1:10 PM ET | Break/Visit the Exhibit Hall
1:10 PM - 1:50 PM ET | Fighting COVID Misinformation in Your Library
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to claim thousands of lives a day, misinformation is a major barrier to public health efforts. How can libraries counter the ocean of false claims? Librarian Reserve Corps Founder and LJ's 2021 Librarian of the Year Elaine Hicks will present on how you can fight the “infodemic” to help patrons safeguard their and their loved ones’ health.
Elaine Hicks, Founder, Librarian Reserve Corps
Introduced by: Meredith Schwartz, Editor-in-Chief, Library Journal
1:55 PM - 2:35 PM ET | What Staff Really Want
Concerns around racial justice, COVID safety, police in the library, budget cuts, and more have surfaced ways in which traditional library policies are no longer working for staff. To stay aligned with frontline workers, management may need a fresh approach—one that emphasizes transparency, communication, and worker involvement in decision making. Hear from library leaders about how they are working together with their teams to address those issues, and providing support for staff as well as patrons.
Ed Garcia, Library Director, Cranston Public Library
Ramiro Salazar, Library Director, San Antonio Public Library
Moderator: Lisa Peet, Library Journal News Editor
2:35 PM - 3:00 PM ET | Break/Visit the Exhibit Hall
3:00 PM - 3:45 PM ET | Keynote with Don Lemon
Hear CNN’s Don Lemon discuss his perspective after years as a breaking news television reporter and anchor, and learn more about his forthcoming title, This Is the Fire: What I Say to My Friends About Racism.
Introduced By: Meredith Schwartz, Editor-in-Chief, Library Journal
3:50 PM - 4:30 PM ET | The Long Haul: How COVID Is Changing Libraries
Libraries have made major shifts to their service models to meet their community’s changing needs during the pandemic, while keeping staff and patrons safe. Once the vaccine rollout is complete and herd immunity is reached, which of those transformational changes will revert, and which will—or should—become a permanent part of our toolkit? And what do we need to do to prepare for the next major disruption?
Veronda Pitchford, Assistant Director, Califa Group
Moderator: Matt Enis, Library Journal Senior Technology Editor
