Libraries Lead

Because Libraries Make LeadersThis year, the American Library Association's Libraries Transform campaign is focusing on "the Leader in the Library": 2017-2018 ALA President Jim Neal has launched “Libraries Lead,” a new presidential initiative focusing on the transformative leadership of libraries and library workers.

The inspiration for this focus? “How critical it is for libraries to be leading the fight for core values like equity of access, intellectual freedom, social responsibility and diversity and inclusion,” Neal says. Read more from Jim Neal about Libraries Lead and the broader impact of Libraries Transform in a Q&A interview.

Transformations in service and scope can be less apparent, but are ever changing. This video is the first of many sharable tools created to spark conversation on the transformed library and library professional.
