Description

Changing societies require changing public institutions. Libraries are keeping up with the pace working on different ways to provide knowledge, information, culture and education for everyone. In today's fast-paced interconnected world, libraries are perfectly positioned to create an inclusive knowledge and learning hub, and a natural entry point into digital information society for all citizens. As we search for new ways of improving the flow of accurate information, of connecting with one another, and preparing ourselves for an ever-more digital future, libraries have an essential role to play in our communities. How might we leverage the unique assets of trusted public spaces, a professional workforce trained in information needs, and the openness to collaborate to foster open learning communities?

In this 1.5 hours session, we will provide participants with approaches that they can apply in their own environment while also putting them into the experience of a co-creative process that can scale.

Dear colleagues, 

to add a bit of further content: our session will be based on two large community programs currently run by OBA Amsterdam: 

Maakplaats021 - A city makerspace program

With 10 makerspaces that will be launched in Amsterdam and 4 already open and live, the OBA Maakplaats021 program is one of the most ambitious maker learning programs of a public library. Addressing young people and kids of all ages - with the aim to make future skills accessible for all

Ouderen In De Wijk - Elderly in the neighborhood

This program targets elderly people by involving them in social community activities while also improving their digital skills.
