How does formal education fit into the future of public libraries? What role will public libraries play in an ever growing digital learning landscape? In 2013, The Aspen Institute facilitated discussions on the future of public libraries and the future of learning via the Internet. This session will showcase the reports—one recently published and another forthcoming—from both groups and delve deeper into the connections, and significance of the results.
