In order to succeed in the 21st century, library workers and leaders will
need to embrace new ways of doing business and reaching our users. Doing
this requires embarking on a comprehensive, dynamic, and ongoing process of
reinvention, beginning with an intentional and imaginative effort to design,
develop, and implement new ways to serve and connect with our users.

In this webinar, we will examine models for innovation used within the
private sector and explore their relevance to libraries.  Everyone has a
role in charting the future for libraries and each of us has a
responsibility for helping build a culture of creativity and innovation
within our libraries.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, attendees will have:

   - Concrete ways to foster creative ideas and innovation within their
   - Seen real-life examples of libraries building cultures of innovation
   - Plans to encourage creativity and innovation in their own libraries

This webinar will be of interest to all library staff interested in building
or supporting within their libraries.
