Libraries are often faced with uncertainty and change; the past two years being a prime example. That’s why it’s important for libraries to be prepared for a range of future transformations. This can include changing the physical design of libraries or service delivery options. Adaptive libraries ensure maximum engagement with patrons and ensure safety for everyone.

This free to attend, online seminar includes a Scenario Planning Workshop, keynote speakers from around the world, panel discussion and more. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in Q&A and find out how changes to library layouts or service delivery can bring benefits to the community.
