  • 2. A Message from President Barbara Stites I selected this years theme - New Possibilities and Partnerships - because it highlights opportunities for improving and introducing new and better products and services. It reflects a positive approach to working within exciting but challenging times. Of course, libraries have always been on the lookout for new possibilities and partnerships. We eagerly adopt new ideas, technologies, services and programs if they show promise to improve our patrons experiences. Todays rapidly developing technology and an urgent need to provide services effectively and efficiently are driving us to employ creative solutions more than ever. Many of us remember moving from card to online catalogs and now to discovery tools. And once information became digital we developed new ways of moving it and sharing it using systems often introduced and supported by new partnerships with national library networks, statewide cooperatives and local multitype library consortia. Once libraries were a place of quiet, now weve added social areas with no expectation of studying or reading. Todays libraries are looking for new and better ways to meet the living, learning, recreational, business and social needs of the born digital, as well as the newly tech literate. It is our challenge to work together to keep libraries vibrant and vital. We must be sure our libraries are relevant to all and we must find ways of doing this that are realistic but exciting. Whether its taking our libraries mobile, keeping public libraries public, support- ing egov services, making ebooks easy, working with vendors on new pricing models, or totally rethinking our service delivery and staffing modes - there is no better time to focus on new perspectives, possibilities and partnerships.
