On Saturday and Sunday, January 21 and 22, David Lankes, who recently authored The Atlas of New Librarianship, led small groups in innovative and interactive conversations about harnessing the evolving role of libraries, and strengthening the librarian’s voice to help shape community perception.

Saturday’s conversation focused on “Understanding Your Communities,” while Sunday’s is on “Transforming Librarianship.”
