The report of the Aspen Institute Roundtable on Library Innovation, written by Amy Garmer, is a series of ten chapters that investigate how the transformation of public libraries will be driven by three factors: (1) new narratives about the library’s role in society, (2) a culture of innovation that promotes new relationships, new networks and new forms of participation, and (3) committed, transformative leadership within the library profession as well as from other community partners including government, media, technology and civic stakeholder groups.
