‘Reimagining Libraries’ with Anythink at United for Libraries’ President’s Program

PHILADELPHIA — United for Libraries will present “Reimagining Libraries,” the United for Libraries President’s Program, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 30 during the ALA Annual Conference in Chicago.

Join United for Libraries President Gail Guidry Griffin to learn how Anythink Libraries (Rangeview Library District, Adams County, Colo.) rebuilt the library system from the ground up and created a new brand that was relevant, represented the future and inspired innovation. The library morphed from a place of books to a center where the community connects with information and creates content as a participatory library.

Featured speakers will be Ronnie Storey-Ewoldt, public services director, Anythink Libraries, and Dot Lindsey, trustee, Anythink Libraries.

The event will be held at McCormick Place, S105d. For more information about United for Libraries programs and events at the ALA Annual Conference, visit
