Imagine Your Library
OACS Library Conference
October 2, 2017
The world of information and learning is in an era of unprecedented change, driven by rapid changes in technology. Libraries in every sector are embracing these changes and reinventing themselves to lead learning for the 21st century. In this session, we’ll look at what this means in terms of updating the library space to inspire creativity, collaboration, and knowledge-building. We will imagine what the library can be, and in the process inspire the school community to imagine the potential of the new school library learning commons.
