Next Library • Media Lab Camp

Next Library • Media Lab Camp

Join the PLIX team for the Next Library•Media Lab Camp!

In this two-hour interactive & highly-collaborative workshop, we will mull over the question:

How do we connect the values of the public library to new, online formats for engaging with patrons and communities?

Think of it like a longer PLIX Community Call, with a focus on the online space and with participation from Next Library leaders!
