Session 3 - Keynote: Five Years in the Future: Maximizing Trends to Meet Your Students' Needs
School libraries are changing, becoming more innovative, collaborative and more hands-on. Keynote speaker, Miguel Figueroa, director of ALA's Center for the Future of Libraries, will discuss the current trends in libraries and how those trends are (and will) transforming libraries. Participants will then choose a trend and discuss what it could look like for the school library, students and teachers five years from now.
