New ULC Leadership Brief: Libraries Igniting Learning

June 21st, 2013

Newport_News_Public_LibraryLifelong learning has always been a core mission of public libraries. What does this mean in 2013?

ULC's newest Leadership Brief, Libraries Igniting Learning, describes new thinking about learning in the 21st century and makes a vigorous case for libraries to step-up their leadership on this front.

The Brief outlines six key strategies to ignite new approaches to learning that will strengthen the library's role as an essential community asset. By realigning staff, resources, programs and space, along with strategic community partnerships, libraries can enable children, teens and adults to gain the skills to be lifelong learners - key to success in today's world.
