The participants at the SLJ Public Think Tank are those taking leadership in creating strong and effective programs and libraries, and envisioning the future vitality of libraries to best serve our communities. This includes but is not necessarily limited to: public library children’s librarians, public library teen services librarians, school librarians in close collaboration with public libraries, and public library directors. SLJ‘s definition of a leader is shaped by accomplishment and outlook as much as title or affiliation. If you know someone else who should be included, let SLJ‘s editor-in-chief Rebecca Miller know who they are and why they should be invited.
