Thirty dynamic leaders and innovators from the public and private sectors – all involved in re-envisioning the ways in which public libraries can adapt to the new needs of communities in the 21st century – joined my Aspen Institute colleagues and me at the Institute’s Aspen Meadows campus in Colorado last summer to explore answers to this question. Our three-day conversation included six senior staff members of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, whose grant to the Aspen Institute Dialogue on Public Libraries made the conference possible.
