Free Library of Philadelphia coordinated the first meeting of national advisory council members for their IMLS Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program grant award. language connectED had the privilege of facilitating this curriculum development meeting with library researchers, directors, and leaders from the US and Canada. The group engaged in lively, engaging discussions around skills all library staff members need to meet the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. The day resulted in a group consensus on directions this curriculum should take and a call to continue communication with one another for support, ideas, and future collaboration. We'd like to thank the Free Library of Philadelphia and their national partners for their knowledge and experience as we move forward with this exciting project.
