A PLA 2020 Virtual Conference On-Demand Session

Do you thrive on change and want to pioneer bold new visions of what public libraries can be? Learn how to build a process for intentional innovation and experimentation at your library. Hear about how Arapahoe Libraries in Colorado designated their Castlewood branch as a place where library users and staff collaborate to experiment with new ways of using the public library. Whether the experiments succeed or fail, the goal is to evolve with your community.

Originally presented as part of the PLA 2020 Virtual Conference on February 27, 2020.

The recording of this session is closed captioned in U.S. English.

Running time: 1 hour

At the conclusion of this on-demand webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Identify methods for obtaining and vetting ideas to apply to the concept approach;
  • Create a process and framework to pilot and implement new ideas at your library; and
  • Facilitate data-driven change through innovation and experimentation at your library.
