Providing Free Makerspaces to Libraries In Need Across The Country | Library happenings | Scoop.it
“ The success of libraries in the future will be determined by its ability to create stories rather than provide them. One way to accomplish this is by putting technology and people together so patrons become creators in makerspaces; a trend which many libraries have adopted. The world is no longer in a maker movement, but a maker revolution. More people are solving problems by coming up with custom solutions.

Book-a-Librarian for a personalized learning session - Phil Shapiro, Monroe Monitor | Library happenings | Scoop.it
By Phil Spirito, Monroe Library Managing Librarian "Stop by the Monroe Library branch of the Sno-Isle Library System any day of the week and you will often see a staff person working in a one-on one session with a customer. Although everyone in the library is strongly encouraged to approach staff and ask for help, these customers have scheduled an appointment to meet with a staff person to get individual help on a wide range of topics. Do you need help downloading an e-book? Are you starting a difficult research project? Do you want individual coaching on basic computer skills? Are you stumped by your new smart phone? Do you need someone to review your resume? If you need help, you can make an appointment with a staff person to get help on almost any topic at the time that works best for you."

Literacy and The Digital Shift: How Educators, Parents & Librarians Can Bridge the Cultural Gap | The Digital Media Diet

Literacy and The Digital Shift: How Educators, Parents & Librarians Can Bridge the Cultural Gap | The Digital Media Diet | Library happenings | Scoop.it
The revolution is here. Over 500 years ago, when the Gutenberg Press was introduced, many people did not understand how the cultural shift would reverberate in every institution within society. We have greatly improved research that can quantify and qualify our projections for the future now, but this does not do anything to hedge against the natural fear of change that is rooted deep in our DNA. However, we are also one of the most adaptable species ever know to this planet, finding ways to accommodate a number of environmental, psychological and physical vulnerabilities into our increased dominance of everything that is associated with planet Earth. This includes a much better understanding about how a cultural transition can be both documented (for posterity), managed for current populations and adjusted to as quickly as possible to promote the best outcomes for future generations ...

Coverage of libraries in the press seems to have turned a corner in the last year or so.  Instead of being irrelevant and being in danger of going extinct we are back in vogue.

 

I think this is partly because the public library's core mission has always been relevant, but also because we have been anxious to adapt to our customer's changing needs.  Finding new customers and new ways of adding value seemed like a good way to retain funding, and this has not gone unnoticed.  Good news!

Library Futures: From Knowledge Keepers to Creators | World Future Society

Library Futures: From Knowledge Keepers to Creators | World Future Society | Library happenings | Scoop.it

As both the location and creation of knowledge become democratized and decentralized, libraries and librarians are rethinking their relationships with the communities they serve and the knowledge they help preserve—and produce.

The future of libraries appears bleak, from many perspectives: Demographically, credentialed librarians are aging; technologically, the information explosion has led to the cybrary, or e-library. The age-old tradition of the library as “the collection” is now being challenged, as is who should organize and collect that information.

Coming Soon to the Library: Humanoid Robots - Wall Street Journal

Coming Soon to the Library: Humanoid Robots - Wall Street Journal | Library happenings | Scoop.it
By LORETTA WALDMAN "WESTPORT, Conn.—They have blinking eyes and an unnerving way of looking quizzically in the direction of whoever is speaking. They walk, dance and can talk in 19 different languages. About the height of a toddler, they look like bigger, better-dressed cousins of Buzz Lightyear. And soon, "Vincent" and "Nancy" will be buzzing around the Westport Library, where officials next week will announce the recent acquisition of the pair of humanoid "NAO Evolution" robots. Their primary purpose: to teach the kind of coding and computer-programming skills required to animate such machines. While it isn't unusual for public libraries to offer instruction in programming or robotics, Westport is the first in the nation to do it with sophisticated humanoid bots made by the French robotics firm Aldebaran. In a brief demonstration last week, Alex Giannini, the library's digital-experience manager, had Vincent kicking a small soccer ball, doing tai chi and taking bows."

This is a report that librarians should first read and THEN make available to his/her principal or admin team as a strong step towards collaborative school-wide planning.
