Description: 

Greater Victoria Public Library (GVPL) implemented a Community-Inspired Library Service Model in 2016 in order to redefine the role of librarians in public services. Influenced by changing trends in public libraries and organizational changes that included the removal of traditional reference desks, GVPL‘s new model focuses on librarians as leaders within and outside the library. Join us for an introduction to the model and hear from public services librarians about how the community-inspired model has influenced their work. There will be time for questions.
