About

Welcome to LIVE from the Library Lounge (#pwlounge), a new favorite gathering place for librarians and library stakeholders to meet each month for candid and thought-provoking discussions about the challenges and opportunities facing libraries now.

Hosted by Andrew Albanese, Publishers Weekly senior writer and editor of PW's Preview for Librarians newsletter, in conversation with a range of special expert guests, this free discussion series aims to respond to timely happenings and give viewers actionable solutions and models they can emulate.

We'll tackle a range of topics:

  • Race, equity and inclusion
  • Programming and providing services in a Covid-19 world
  • Advocacy and action
  • And more!

We'll also take questions from the audience to deepen the conversation. Questions can be posted before and during the event on Twitter by using hashtag #pwlounge.

So bookmark this page, put on your thinking cap and tune in each month from your favorite device for lively conversations with some of the best and brightest in the field.
