Event Details

Today at lab we will be talking about the Relevance of Public Libraries.

Some think libraries won’t be relevant in the future. 

So we want to discuss whether or not there will be a place for libraries in the future. As more and more content transitions to digital, what roles, if any, will libraries play in the future for the individual communities across our state and our nation? How can libraries respond best to the needs of their local citizens? What are some unique opportunities and niche services that might be offered? How will libraries get the support necessary to meet their missions?

Islands of Brilliance

Islands of Brilliance is a technology-centric creative learning experience developed specifically for children and young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Our classes help students gain the focus, socialization, and sense of accomplishment often lacking in traditional education and programming. We currently focus on students ages 9-16 diagnosed with Autism, Aspergers, and PDD-NOS. We offer Spring, Summer, and Fall sessions in which students are matched 1 : 1 with a volunteer mentor from the creative services industry. Together they create a poster or book, using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop software.

"Together, we are changing the lens from special needs to special gifts."
