With so much to learn from in 2017, we are already looking ahead to 2018.
We are especially focused on the opportunities relating to connection and collaboration — seeing libraries learn the importance of becoming collaborative spaces. Libraries can be spaces where groups in the community can come to meet and where newcomers can learn more about their city. On-site amenities can now be complemented off-site as well.
Nowadays especially, it's becoming more and more important for libraries to be connected — not only to their patrons, but to other libraries as well. For some great examples of libraries that are already doing this nationwide, check out Ten Examples of Successful Library Collaborative Projects. And stay tuned for what's to come in 2018!
