Libraries Transform

October 17, 2015 at 2:47 am Leave a comment

Libraries Transform seeks to shift the mindset that “libraries are obsolete or nice to have” to “libraries are essential” and to change the perception that “libraries are just quiet places to do research, find a book and read” to “libraries are centers of their communities: places to learn, create and share, with the help of library staf and the resources they provide.” Through the Libraries Transform campaign, ALA will increase awareness of libraries’ vibrancy and vitality through active local grassroots programs, a national social and traditional media campaign and strategic alliances with corporations, media entities and other organizations. Sari Feldman will introduce the campaign at the June 30, 2015 Inaugural Brunch in San Francisco during the 2015 ALA Annual Conference. Attendees at the brunch will receive a set of postcards with “Because” statements and a sample window cling. This three-year campaign will ofcially launch to the profession and the public in fall of 2015. Goal Libraries Transform is designed to increase public awareness of the value, impact, and services provided by libraries and library professionals of all types. It is designed to showcase how:

• libraries transform both communities and the lives of individuals • libraries continue to transform to meet rapidly changing 21st century needs and • library professionals continue to transform to meet the evolving needs of the communities in which they serve.
