Interview with Stephen Abram

Library futurist Stephen Abram sat down with me recently to tape a session for Bubble Room. Stephen was in town to help my library as we revisit our strategic plan. I asked him to share his thoughts. It certainly is a dynamic time for libraries and and Stephen challenges us to think of ourselves in new ways. Follow his blog or on Facebook. Enjoy!

P.S. It is a little long (10 minutes) but once you get Stephen going, you can’t stop!!
