Ever wonder what libraries will look like in the future? And how they’re partnering with people in their communities to address information needs?
During a Knight conference exploring the role of libraries in the digital world, we interviewed library directors from eight communities - Philadelphia, St. Paul, Macon, Charlotte, Miami, Akron, San Jose and Detroit - to ask these questions and more.
Hear what library directors from these communities say are their biggest successes and listen to insights in how they’re addressing challenges.
In these videos, library directors also share what projects they’ve developed to help better serve their communities. The Free Library of Philadelphia, for example, was able to involve itself more deeply in communities by creating hot spots in areas with limited digital access.
