FHBA Monthly Meeting with Lance Werner

FHBA Monthly Meeting with Lance Werner

Join us this month with Lance Werner, Director or Kent District Library.  Lance won the highly coveted award of Librarian of the Year.  It is an award that is awarded to one librarian in all of North America! 

Libraries have been doing the same thing for over 3000 years. It suffices to say that there are a lot of sentimental feelings around what libraries are and what libraries do, both among society and within libraries themselves. Libraries are constantly up against the threat of market disruption and becoming relics. So what's the cure? Innovation, innovation, innovation. This discussion is about challenging the status quo, blazing new trails, doing what is hard, and making it part of day-to-day culture.

We will meet at the Wisner Center, KDL Library in Cascade Township.  Location is at 2870 Jack Smith Ave SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
