Video - Prototyping the Library of the Future - Today
With funding for libraries disappearing what is the role of libraries in the future? Annemarie Naylor believes that libraries need to evolve so that they function as trusted and impartial platforms for the production, exchange and consumption of knowledge and know-how in both tangible locations and virtual spaces.
Annemarie is Director at Common Futures, Associate Director with Locality and is also a member of the Government’s Local Public Data Panel. Her work has involved supporting the acquisition and development of broad-ranging assets in community hands.
She’s also involved with a number of initiatives to transform the future of libraries and has established a national network for community libraries, which has culminated in winning the international OuiShare Award.
