The Edge Initiative from a Small and Rural Library Perspective

Join us on September 25th at 11 AM Pacific/Noon Mountain/1 PM Central/2 PM Eastern time, as we talk with participants from Edge Initiative pilot libraries located in small/rural communities!

Edge Initiative

The Edge Initiative is a voluntary assessment program that provides libraries with benchmarks, best practices, tools and resources that support continuous improvement and reinvestment in public technology services. Edge helps libraries connect their services to community priorities.   Edge will be available to public libraries nationwide in January 2014.   

Pilot Libraries

A group of pilot libraries has been testing the benchmarks in their libraries and communities. Join us on September 25th at 11 AM Pacific/Noon Mountain/1 PM Central/2 PM Eastern time, as we talk with participants from pilot libraries located in rural communities. Mary Haney is the director of the  Hennessey Public Library in Oklahoma and Lee Ann Barnes is the director of the Okeene Public Library, also in Oklahoma. What did they do? What did they learn? What are they planning to do next? Hear their stories and ask questions, too.
