LILRC 23rd Annual Conference on Libraries and the Future
Think Outside the Bricks: Embed, Engage, Expand
With less than 7 days and counting to take advantage of early bird rates for this year’s LILRC 23rd Annual Conference on Libraries and the Future, here’s another look at two of our guest speakers for Thursday’s event.
Erin Cannan, Associate Director of Bard College’s Center for Civic Engagement and Erica Freudenberger, Director of Red Hook Public Library (pictured to the right) will be presenting:
Innovation and Transformation Through Partnership
Libraries are cornerstone to American democracy. What does it mean for libraries to look beyond the boundaries of space and mission? What does it mean when librarians act as innovators responsible for forging private and public partnerships in order to act as central agents for change? Find out how Red Hook Public Library redefined its goals as a small rural library by seeking partnerships, including the one it forged with Bard College. Learn how the experience changed both the organization and the people involved. Erin Cannan, Associate Director of Bard College’s Center for Civic Engagement and Erica Freudenberger, Director of Red Hook Public Library, share their experience as public innovators where a partnership led to personal and professional transformations both for their organizations and the communities they serve.
