14 - 25 May 2012

National events

A series of workshops will take place across the country in May this year as part of Envisioning the library of the future, our programme of research and debate.

The workshops will allow people to take part in a discussion that will begin to envisage what the library of the future could and should look like.

At each event we will present the research into societal trends that is currently taking place as a set of possible scenarios and explore the implications of these scenarios for the delivery of library services in the future.

The events will also involve open space discussions about how library services could develop. Delegates will be asked to contribute their views and take an active part in the conversation.

Register your interest

Places for the events are limited, so we are asking people to register their interest in attending through our online booking system. We'd like people to tell us what aspects of libraries they are most interested in so that we can make sure that each event covers a balance of different perspectives a range of delegates.

We'll then get back to everyone who expressed an interest in attending to confirm whether or not they have a place.
