Libraries Transform

Join us in November 2016 to continue transforming your library
Connect with peers and colleagues in Tucson.

Libraries today are transforming from institutions that provide people with needed items into institutions that provide people with needed services and new experiences. Libraries need to transform:

…because more than a quarter of U.S. households don’t have a computer with an Internet connection.

…because city comic-cons cost money.

…because teenagers need a place to be teenagers without fear of judgment or bullying.

…because how our patrons interact with each other and with information has dramatically changed.

…because transformation is essential to the communities we serve!

What's your 'because'?
