Delivered by Kristin Anderson, Winding Rivers Library System, West Salem; Jocelyne Sansing, Middleton Public Library; Jessica Schoonover, Shirley M. Wright Memorial Library, Trempealeau; Rachel Arndt, Milwaukee Public Library for WAPL 2019 on May 2nd in Rothschild, Wisconsin. Back again by popular demand! Each year, a number of new reports for and about public libraries are produced by organizations like Pew, OCLC, ALA, Library Journal, The Aspen Institute and others. These reports contain valuable information that can help us do our jobs better, but, unfortunately, few of us have the time to read every single one. The goal of this session is to help attendees get an overview of some of those reports and their potential impact on library work. Each panelist will share a summary of a report they believe is significant and discuss the broad and practical implications for libraries.
