Tonight we were again joined by Pat Wagner, who is retiring from her consulting practice at the end of the year and returning to being a poet. Knowing that, we’ve had her on several times this year. Pat’s career has been as an educator extraordinary and strategic planning consultant. When we asked her what she wants her legacy to be, she said, “People will feel braver!”
Pat talked about what makes a library to be on the cutting edge; future-proofing; strategic planning; badly designed buildings; who libraries compete with; and more.
On the show with Pat was Maurice Coleman, Jill Hurst-Wahl, Paul Signorelli, and Tom Haymes.
