Attendees had this to say about our first two:
“This symposium had some of the best overall content of any conference I’ve attended, including big ones like OLA, PLA, ALA, etc.”
“Enjoyed the mix of in person, multimedia, Skype.” “Great mix.” “The variety added to the ability to maintain attention – you got it right.”
“Choice of speakers was outstanding.” “They all excelled.”
“All speakers were on subject and brought experience and expertise. Good spotlight on the tools so we can make decisions about our own spaces.”
“All the speakers were inspiring and informative. This symposium make me think about creative making in a deeper way and gave me ideas about how libraries can be leaders in providing access to creative making spaces, instruction, events, etc. I loved Chattanooga PL’s 4th floor culture, the energy they put into their events. Fayetteville PL’s call for libraries to ‘just be relevant’ is also amazing – I believe that organizational culture eats planning for breakfast and it is inspirational to see how these libraries operate.”
“I really liked getting insight from organizations outside of libraries as well as libraries of different types – hearing about the successful things they are doing.”
