Library missions are to promote literacy and lifelong learning but, we often hit headwinds to creating a reading culture, or get distracted by fun and shiny things. Are you concerned about your community's (public, academic or school) declining literacy rates, their lack of attention spans, or their lack of time to read? Tracy Miller and Lois Entner will introduce you to Futuring tools and explain how to use them to reframe the issues we face. You will look towards the future by brainstorming ways to raise the profile of reading, and become influencers of the value of literacy and learning. The Unconference format depends on you, so come ready to share and participate in discussion!
Registration will open at 12:30. Bring your own lunch and join in on networking before the program, which will begin promptly at 1:00.
