If you are close to Salem and interested in attending the LYRASIS meeting with a group, the Oregon State Library is registered as a community location. The meeting will stream from 10:30 am - 1:30 pm on Thu. Feb. 7 in our basement conference room.

The theme of the meeting is "Survive or Thrive: Connecting Libraries and Community." The keynote with Richard C. Harwood<http://www.lyrasis.org/Classes-and-Events/LYRASIS-Annual-Member-Meeting/Speakers.aspx> on "Building Community" will be at 11:15.

There will also be a lightning panel at 12:15. This is the topic the panelists will address:

Communities are groups of people who share a set of values or interests, who come together for a specific reason, and/or who reside in a certain area, including virtual locations. Communities are changing, yet continue to be especially important to the success and future of libraries. With the pressures on libraries to connect with their users and show positive impact on the communities in which they serve, as well as the ever increasing digital nature of information and ways people interact, the notion of community is evolving and has new meaning. How do you define community? How does community impact your institution and what you offer?
