Mark your calendars for the Future of Libraries Conference, back in person on Tuesday, October 18 at San Francisco Public Library. This year, we tackle the nitty-gritty of how to serve our communities in a rapidly changing world. Our keynote speakers, librarians Frieda Afary and Wonda Powell, will address librarians’ role in teaching critical thinking and empathy in an age of disinformation. Other topics include conflicts around digital lending, non-traditional library collections. Join us to learn from your peers and share your own innovative programs and perspectives!
