Stephen Abram, Principal, Lighthouse Consulting Inc. & & Executive Director, Federation of Ontario Public Libraries (FOPL)

School, public, and in fact all stripes of librarians are “programmed” to serve the public, whether it be their students and faculty, their patrons, or their clients—and to make a difference in their communities. That’s just who they are. Stephen recounts how librarians in his hometown community are reaching out to serve some brand-new patrons: refugees! Come hear his inspiring story!
