Don’t miss out on Agora Institute’s final lecture of their 2015-2016 series, Shared Space: The City and Human Flourishing. Warner Library is very excited to co-sponsor the April 14th presentation by Siobhan Reardon, President and Director of the Free Library of Philadelphia. Ms. Reardon will present A Strategy for Maintaining Relevance: The Free Library of Philadelphia in the 21st Century. Here is a little more information about the speaker:

Ms. Reardon is President and Director of the Free Library of Philadelphia, the first woman to serve in this position. In 2015, Library Journal named her “Librarian of the Year” for her work advancing literacy and broadening accessibility of library materials for underserved parts of Philadelphia. She is an  endowment Trustee of the American Library Association as well as a board member of the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance. Her presentation will highlight some of the nationally-recognized service innovations, as well as current approaches the library is adopting in the Philadelphia urban environment to sustain and amplify its vitality in the digital age.

Please consider attending this event. We’d love to see you here! More information
