Anythink (CO) does such interesting things! I've been following tweets (here and here and here) about their TechFest, which is happening today and it sounds great. Donna Feddern from Escondido Public Library (CA) is a keynote speaker. If you can't hear her in Colorado today, you can check out the webinar she delivered with us last fall. Escondido's LibraryYOU is an inspiring project.

A list of innovative programs, influenced by a tweet

Today I read Lee Rainie’s tweet (Director of Pew Internet Project) requesting examples of innovative library services and decided to send him a few highlights from this past year. To me, some of the more innovative library programs do not fall under bleeding edge tech or super cool gadgetry categories, but under smart uses of resources to meet community needs. This past year, many of the innovative programs I heard about were focused on extending the boundaries of the library through partnerships and through reimagining services the library  offers.
