What Will We Keep: Creating the Next Remix of Library Services

conference banner image

In 2020 we saw libraries close, partially reopen, fully reopen, and some we watched go through the cycle multiple times. Through it all, libraries adapted to the new operational and service landscape in unique and unprecedented ways. While some of these changes are not sustainable or ideal long term, many of these adaptations are proving to be beneficial solutions.

How will/should your library compose its new suite of services? Which services will be part of the new mix? Which new service delivery methods, unique programs, and systems will continue into the future? Amigos’ 2021 Annual Member Conference will highlight libraries’ new directions, services, and opportunities and what libraries expect to keep as our changed landscape continues to develop.
