In early May The Singer Group enjoyed leading and engaging a team of facilitators in support of the American Library Association’s Future of Libraries Summit held at the Library of Congress. ALA leadership through this invitational summit brought together librarians from all walks of life and key stakeholders in technology, publishing, education and more to provide input regarding priorities for the new American Library Association Center of the Future of Libraries. The two day event featured speakers who painted a compelling picture of the future followed by summit participant engagement with the material presented through facilitated table discussions, personal reflections, and social media.
