Are we meeting the needs of our users? What is community librarianship? Is community librarianship the future or the past? BCALA-CT bring together four guest speakers who will discuss various issues in this debate of whether community librarianship is on the rise or declining and what we can do at our libraries to be an influence and meet the needs of the community. These librarians,  Tracie D. Hall, Director, Strategy and Organizational Development, Queens Library; Tracy Sutherland, Public Services Librarian, Eastern Connecticut State University, Todd Hampton, Reference Librarian, Norwalk Community College and Astoria H. Ridly, Law Librarian, CT Judicial Branch will speak about their experiences at their institutions.
