This is the 30th Anniversary of the Libraries and the Future Conference. The first conference was held in September of 1992, the keynote was David Pearce Snyder from The Futurist magazine. In 2006, he returned to speak on a panel with Thomas Frey who was a Senior Futurist from the Da Vinci Institute. This year we are returning to these roots for the conference with three futurist speakers.
Miguel Figueroa who is currently the President and CEO of Amigos Library Services and formerly led the ALA Center for the Future of Libraries. He will be defining futurism as a concept and how it can be applied to planning for libraries.
Brandy McNeil, Director of Adult Services at the New York Public Library, has been a leader in the library field including building the highly successful TechConnect Department at the New York Public Library. She will be talking in practical terms what the future looks like for libraries.
The last speaker is Stacey Aldrich, the State Librarian of Hawaii, and was a 2020 candidate for ALA President. She has been conducting research on the future of libraries and strategic planning, and will speak on how to incorporate futurism in strategic thinking and scenario planning.
