The future of libraries

  • people
  • place
  • content
  • communication

harry potter & star wars are media neutral – books, movies, bcd, video game, toys, backpack

why are people coming into the libraries? Use the computer, Internet access on laptop, to just read the newspaper in the company of others

library as a third space’

library as a town activity center including things as swimming pool

kathryn says academic libraries in australia are coordinating more and more with the other communities

technology is evolving so fast, can we keep up? Do we feel like we are keeping up?

What about the education gap not just for staff but for patrons as well?

its ok to fail, you need time to play, its ok to play with things that dont work out

learning needs to be a priority and management and staff need to make it a priority
