Libraries have always stored and provided access to content, but as technology changes and the digital divide persists how will libraries adapt to best serve their communities? For some, the next step is content creation. Join us on April 20th at the Fountaindale Public Library and hear two tech-minded librarians share their experiences.
Paul Mills, Director of the Fountaindale Public Library, will discuss the process they are undertaking to renovate a portion of their building and transform it into a digital media space.
Karen McBride, Public Information Manager of the Barrington Public Library, will discuss their digital media space and content creation projects that she has implemented both at the Barrington and Des Plaines Public Libraries.
