People depend on libraries now more than ever. I see three big goals for libraries: provide engaging learning experiences, become community anchors, and provide access to content even as the devices for accessing that content change rapidly.
Urban Librarians Unite started as a way to get librarians to exchange ideas. Over time, we've cultivated an effective mix of Social Media and old fashioned advocacy. The stereotype of the quiet, meek librarian has given us a lot to play with.
