The Public Library Reimagined (3/8) -- Public libraries are enjoying a rise in attendance of offered programs, largely because they are continually experimenting with new services. It is true that people are reading more and traditional programs are also enjoying a bump in usership, but as the world of information changes libraries are becoming venues to facilitate learning through experience. People are excited to see the future of learning and production, and programs that allow users to experiment with 3-D printers, data visualization, and other advanced manufacturing are very popular.

"The Public Library Reimagined" took place on June 29, 2014 in Aspen, Colorado, as part of the Aspen Ideas Festival's Metropolis track. Sommer Mathis (Editor, Atlantic CityLab) moderated a panel with Brian Bannon (Commissioner, Chicago Public Library), Tessie Guillermo (President & CEO, ZeroDivide), and John Palfrey (President, Board of Directors of the Digital Public Library of America and Head of School, Phillips Academy).
