The image of librarians as knowledge holders and of libraries as holders of books is shifting as librarians take on roles as Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) educators with the growing emphasis on STEAM and makerspaces in libraries.

Join us in exploring how reimagining partnerships and learning can help us imagine possible futures for libraries and librarians.
