The value of a library lies not in collections, or buildings, or even in staffing. The value of the library is in the potential of a community unlocked. Yet, how do we unlock the potential of the community in these days of shifting formats, questions on library value, and an increasingly connected population? The answer is not in increasing the materials we store, or in adding retail pizzazz to our facilities. The answer is in transforming ourselves into a platform for learning and innovation. This presentation will focus on how the library and librarians can foster knowledge creation and innovation within our communities. It talks about how this new approach to librarianship requires real changes in our operations and outlook.
