What to expect from libraries in the 21st century

000000In this TEDX talk,  recorded in Denver last November (2013),  Adams County librarian Pam Sandlian Smith shows how she works to use the library as a hub for community-based knowledge creation and discourse.

This is a speech that will touch your heart. Most people don’t know how important libraries are to our children.

Today’s library is not like they were before. We call ourselves Idea stores, we help out during disasters, we work hard to meet our communities’ needs, and we are more than just books.

Let your library be your treehouse.
