In celebration of National Library Week, American Library Association President Barbara Stripling engages the audience in a town hall style discussion on the state of libraries in America. She shares her national and international perspectives on the greatest challenges and opportunities for libraries to be life-long learning institutions, community builders, publishing partners, collaboratories, empowerment engines, maker spaces, and much more.

The town hall meeting format encourages questions from the audience; if you have questions to submit in advance, please contact Karen Downing or Emily Hamstra.

Stripling is Assistant Professor of Practice at Syracuse University, preparing the next generation of librarians for the communities of the future. She has written or edited numerous books and articles on inquiry, assessment, instructional design, 21st century skills, empathy, and primary sources. Her Stripling Model of Inquiry has been adopted widely as a framework for teaching and learning.

This event is sponsored by the Ann Arbor District Library (AADL) and the University of Michigan Library.
