Learn how Michigan and Indiana librarians are engaging and transforming their communities

Please join us for the MCLS Annual Meeting on October 3, 2014 at the McCamly Plaza in Battle Creek, Michigan.

Our keynote will be from Maureen Sullivan, former ALA president, presenting on how libraries can engage and transform their community. Following Maureen a panel of regional library leaders will respond to and share how they are managing change.

Corey Seeman, Director of the University of Michigan Kresge Business Administration Library, will address how his library is undergoing a massive transformation, which slashes both student and collection space. He will explain how they are reaching out to the community from less visible settings, and showcasing a philosophy which strives to create an entrepreneurial approach to the potentially devastating changes to Kresge.

Emily Bunyan, Director of the Knox County Public Library, will talk about her experiences during her journey as she participates in ALA’s Libraries Transforming Communities Harwood Public Innovator’s Cohort.

Christina Wray, from the Center for Disability Information and Referral at the Indiana Institute on Disability and Community, will speak about providing accessibility to all within her community.
