Future of Libraries Interest Group

Purpose

We work to ensure that MLA members and Maryland libraries are prepared to take advantage of tomorrow’s opportunities. We keep aware of emerging trends, we motivate library staff to embrace a change-ready mindset and attitude, we are predictive and proactive about positioning libraries to be future-ready, and we ensure that our libraries are driving the success of adaptive and resilient Maryland communities. Though many trends are advanced by developments in technology, this group recognizes that changes in the arts, demographics, education, environment, government, politics, science, and society also shape the communities that our Maryland libraries serve and support.
