What does the future hold for the District of Columbia Public Libraries?
CUA LIS students, faculty, alumni and friends were treated to an intriguing talk by Richard Reyes-Gavilan, at the kickoff of the Fall Colloquium Series held Monday, September 15, on campus .
Mr. Reyes-Gavilan shared with the audience the challenges the 26-campus library system faces and the innovative, creative solutions to deal with budgets, buildings, infrastructure, and partnerships with the public and charter schools. He discussed the transformation the library is going through to serve D.C. residents and how the library will bring literacy in unexpected places.
Reyes-Gavilan also announced for the first time in public the upcoming 50 X 15 program soon to be launched — an online rapid-fire suggestion box for staff.
