On the call were Maurice Coleman, Andrea Snyder, Courtney Young, Laura Botts, and Jill Hurst-Wahl.

Talking about what Courtney Young, current ALA president, has learned from her ALA travels thus far. Then the conversation moved onto interesting library spaces, including libraries that are in shopping malls and libraries that have innovation space.

Courtney was asked about the non-book[1] things that she has seen, as she as traveled:

  • Other type of lending programs, e.g., cake pans, art, tools
  • Programs on specific skills, e.g., butchering
  • Spaces for specific portions of the community, e.g., teens

Maurice mentioned the loaning of American Girl dolls through his library.  It was mentioned that you have to consider your community and ensure that the programs (e.g., how to raise roosters) is appropriate.
