Visioning: The information and communication environment that libraries operate in continues to change rapidly. It makes it difficult for people who work in libraries to clearly see the changes, challenges, and opportunities they present. At the same time library services are changing quickly as libraries continue to innovate even during a time of serious budget challenges.
Engage: Our intent is to engage members of the TBLC community in a visioning process to identify the changes underway and innovative services that respond to them so that we can help position libraries for continued success.
Plan: The vision ideas from these sessions will be summarized and shared widely and will be used to help us plan for TBLC’s future.
Attendees: These sessions are open to all librarians, public, academic, special and k-12.
