  • 5 emerging trends in today’s libraries
    Technology and digital resources are expanding rapidly in U.S. libraries, and important tech tools that serve entire communities are available at nearly all libraries across the nation. The American Library Association's 2014 Digital Inclusion Survey makes note of the large role libraries play in education, individual engagement, as well as new programs they are developing, such as maker programming and 3D printing. Though digital resources are growing throughout libraries, the survey also found that this growth is uneven. For instance, fewer than half of rural libraries said they increased bandwidth speeds in the last 24 months, compared with 64 percent of urban libraries and 56 percent of suburban libraries. Further complicating the divide between library resources is the fact that less than two-thirds (64 percent) of rural libraries said they have access to information technology staff, compared to 95 percent of urban and 85 percent of suburban libraries. Sixty-six percent of all libraries surveyed said they would increase bandwidth if they could, and cited cost as the top barrier to moving forward with those plans. When it comes to emerging trends, libraries are forging new paths and diversifying the resources that students and community members will find. The top emerging trends include: 1. STEM maker spaces (16.8 percent) 2. Social media training (45.8 percent) 3. Wireless printing (33 percent) 4. 3D printing (2 percent) 5. Coding, development, hackathons (2 percent) “Creating is becoming a new digital competency, and libraries are building and expanding their programs and services to meet these changing community needs,” said Ann Joslin, president of the Chief Officers of State Library Agencies, in a statement about the report. Joslin is the state librarian in Idaho, which implemented a pilot program to support library maker activities and new technologies and tools.

Kilte-Awlaelo Schools Development Association successfully celebrated its 9th anniversary in Boston, MA on July 21, 2012. The Boston and Maine brothers and sisters were well prepared for the success of the event. Members who flew to Boston to attend the event were also well prepared. Most members rented their own cars from the airport which helped to reduce the burden of transportation on the hosting city brothers and sisters. The time they were going to spend to transport members used it to coordinate other activities of the event. And that strategy worked perfectly.
