Libraries Change Lives!  
A Dialogue with Barbara Stripling, President American Library Association

Libraries of all types across the country are on the move – they are transforming their programs, collections, and services to provide equitable access to information and meet the priorities of the communities they serve.  Libraries are stepping up to become centers of conversation, community engagement, learning, and innovation.

Share a morning with Barbara Stripling, 2013-2014 ALA president!  Barbara will discuss her presidential initiative, Libraries Change Lives.  The goal for all libraries is to listen to their communities and support community members in achieving their aspirations.  Share your voice!

Christian Zabriskie, Assistant Coordinator, Young Adult Services Queens Library & Founder Urban Libraries Unite will share his transformative initiatives that build practice around the community priorities he has discovered by turning outward.
