Libraries (public, school, and academic) are re-visioning their roles in communities, moving beyond the rapidly outdated paradigm of creating services for patrons and students and instead partnering with community members in building meaningful experiences: whether those happen within the library's walls, on a digital network, or in cultural and political spaces. Taking an asset-based, grassroots view, librarians and library educators advocate using a community informatics model toward library services, where significant engagement can happen. In this program, we discuss this paradigm shift, why it's so necessary, and what it looks like in the real world
