Timely Topics:  Lessons from Libraries: Reinvention for Survival

March 29       7 PM – 8:30 PM


In the past decade, public libraries have evolved from their late 19th and 20th century roles.  Once primarily repositories for books and quite often community art and history, libraries have embraced a community center role with banks of computer stations, public programming space and even cafes as print media and public funding have declined.  Learn about the history and evolution of libraries, what might be coming next and how new media affect library design, staff training, and how people think and process information.  Our thoughtful and eloquent panel of librarians and historians includes West Hartford Library Director Pat Holloway, preservationist Bill Hosley, Vince Juliano, Assistant Director of the Russell Library in Middletown, and Windsor Library Director Gaye Rizzo.  COST: $6 adults, $5 seniors and students, $4 members. 860-688-3813 for more information.
