With the technology landscape constantly shape-shifting, libraries must respond as futurists to changing patron needs. Learn strategies for working to remain relevant, if not core, to your community's needs by providing the means and support for patrons to create and innovate.

Rural and small libraries with limited resources can become community innovation incubators, by providing patrons access to transformative technologies and by creating the space new ideas to be explored. looking beyond makerspaces to idea spaces. Library staff and administrators will consider why this is important and encouraged to consider what form their community needs demand from its library.

This webinar will be presented by Andrea Berstler, past president of the Association for Rural & Small Libraries and the current executive director of the Wicomico Public Library in Maryland.
