In October 2014 the Aspen Institute released its report, Rising to the Challenge: Re-Envisioning Public Libraries (link is external). With support from the Bill &Melinda Gates Foundation, the multi-year project brought together thought leaders and experts from different sectors, including libraries, to consider the challenges, opportunities and trends that will influence the future of public libraries in the United States. Since then the Aspen Institute has embarked upon an ambitious program to ensure that the report will be used to promote transformation and sustainability of public libraries in communities across the country and at state and national levels.
If you've heard about the Aspen report and would like to know how you could utilize it in your library or community, this webinar is for you. Join Susan Hildreth, Aspen Fellow, to learn about the highlights of the reports and resources available to support your use of the report with a variety of stakeholders.
