Libraries Transform is a national public awareness campaign supported by the American Library Association. WPPL has joined libraries of all types in an effeort to increase awareness of the changing role of libraries and the ways that we are transforming to meet the digital and print information needs of our users.
Rapid advances in technology are fueling a library renaissance. No longer just places form books, libraries now offer an assortment of free digitally-based programs and services including downloadable content and technology training. Such tech-based resources are transforming lives through digital literacy and lifelong learning.
As part of the initiative, we'll be sharing the Director's Column from our Notes newsletter, where Andrew Mangels discusses what Libraries Transform means here in Westlake, Ohio. Please share your ideas of how libraries are transforming and transformative, either in the comments section of the blog or on social media.
