  • To assist all libraries in identifying key trends that will impact communities over the next 5 to 10 years.
  • To develop a corps of Library Fellows, leaders of the future, who will take a deeper dive into these trends and design some clear responses both at the local and system levels.

All finding of this process will be shared out with the larger library community as well as with key stakeholders, funders, and partnering agencies.
