A205 - Building a 21st-Century Library

4:15 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Travis Duncan, Media Relations Specialist, Pikes Peak Library District
Jeremiah Walter, Community Engagement Specialist, Pikes Peak Library District

Hear what PPLD is doing with a 112,883 square-foot facility that library leaders hope to transform into a new kind of library, a building that will become a showcase for what a library of the future might look like. The goal is to have a regional destination that fosters creativity and innovation among its patrons. Learn about efforts to engage the community, including the launch of a new website to document construction on the project through multiple channels, such as library-created videos and local media coverage, community focus groups, partnerships with local meetup groups and universities, and even a staff rebate program to encourage all staff to get engaged with a new kind of library offering services geared more toward content creation than simply curation. Join speakers in an interactive group activity to brainstorm what their library is already doing that fits into the mold of a “21st Century Library” and share ideas for how PPLD could better market and engage audiences with these programs.
