What does the library without books look like? We can argue all day about whether or not printed books will eventually become obsolete. Or we can wonder how libraries and librarians will continue to serve their communities if they do. In this thought-provoking webinar, consultants Joan Frye Williams and George Needham will explore the challenges and opportunities presented by a “post-print” world.
It’s no small feat to change an existing brand, and the library brand has always been “books.” Library shelves may not be devoid of paper any time soon, but if alternative reading formats continue to be adopted at current rates, we’ll need to realign and rebrand our services or risk going the way of the dodo.
This is not a webinar about how to add eBooks to your collection; this is a webinar about how to re-imagine and articulate the importance of what we can do in our communities.
