Presentation by Nate Hill, Assistant Director at the Chattanooga Public Library, which had the best quote about the Social Library (which I believe Chattanooga and a number of other systems embody) "This  isn't about designing new services for those who already value the library.

Miguel Mimoso Correia's insight:

"For ladies and gentlemen of a certain age, the library is changing too fast. For kids, it's not changing fast enough. University students are caught in the middle. Their library experience must be like surfing: riding the edge of a moving wave, never quite cresting, never quite crashing. Such a state has to be thrilling, but ultimately exhausting."
