2016 Innovations Initiative

The 2016 Innovations Initiative submission site has officially closed and winners have been contacted.

We would like to extend a HUGE thank you to our fantastic members for their submissions to ULC's 2016 Innovations Initiative. We received a record-setting number of innovative and unique submissions, ranging from education programs on race and social equity to innovative summer learning initiatives, that highlight our public libraries as vital community institutions and change agents.

If you are registered to attend the ULC Annual Forum, please join us at the Kansas City Public Library on October 6, 2016, for the 2nd Annual Innovations Celebration.

For further details about the Innovations Initiative or the Celebration, please contact Colleen Bragiel.

About the ULC Innovations Initiative

Since 2010, the ULC Innovations Initiative has gathered, shared and showcased the value of the leading practices, services and programs created by ULC member libraries. These creative projects demonstrate how our members, and public libraries in general, continue to evolve and serve as essential technology, education and community leaders. The Innovations Initiative promotes innovations across ULC libraries, garnering national and international recognition for our library innovators and the integral role they play in building thriving communities.
