Wallingford plans to construct a “Collaboratory” within its public library. Come hear what this means for you & for the community. Help us imagine the future of public libraries in Connecticut.
Libraries have always been in the business of sharing and distributing knowledge. As we prepare for the new economy where digital literacy skills are key, how will library services be impacted? How will public libraries continue to align their services to support their community’s goals and ensure long-term sustainability?
