Fix the Future: 

Access, Innovation, Opportunities


Current and future library leaders will convene this fall to learn how to better position their service programs and facilities for success in the face of key societal, technological, and global changes. Anyone interested in future proofing toward ensuring the relevancy and sustainability of the work they do and the audiences they represent should look to attend.

On Thursday evening, October 25th at 5:30pm, the conference will begin with the dynamic kick-off speaker, Wesley Rebisz, Asset Manager at Lesso Home, re-developers for the site formerly known as The Source Mall.  Wesley will discuss the disruptive impact technology has had on consumer behavior and information consumption.
