Weekly Update — January 24, 2018

Final Visits of the 2017 Tour

The final visits of the 2017 library tour by the support team were completed at the end of November. All told, we visited 163 service locations as part of this tour and had a great time getting to know you and your libraries better. An executive report will be released later this spring together with a full album of the visit cards so that we can share more of the great ideas, programs, and partnerships you celebrate. Thank you all so much for sharing your time, ideas, and libraries with us!











In case you’re interested in tracking where we traveled, there is an interactive map (with links to the full sized profile cards) available: 2017 Tour.
