Society's traditional understanding of a library is changing due to many factors - with digitization being just one of them. What is the core functions of libraries before the digital shift - and now? What is the future of libraries - will books become obsolete? Will we create a library of experiences? Will libraries serve as a social service centre, an innovation space, or a reading room? Will libraries become places of not just learning, but of creation? The framework for the event is an open dialogue around where the future will take us in relation to libraries in Ireland. We are trying to bring together a variety of perspectives and have invited representatives from the library community in Dublin as well as library architects, writers and publishers.
