ACPL Library Camp 2015 Unconference

Friday, August 7, 2015


Improvisational Innovation:

Inspiring a Culture of Creativity at Your Library


Follow our updates on Twitter: @ACPLLibraryCamp


Registration is now open!                                               Who is attending?


Keynote: Logan MacDonald

Anythink is a new style of library--a place of unlimited imagination where play inspires creativity and lifelong learning.  In this session, you will learn about organizational culture and how Anythink transformed its libraries and culture to create opportunities for innovation and risk-taking.  You'll also explore ways that culture can influence products and services.Anythink Logo


Logan MacDonald is director of Products and Technology for Anythink Libraries in Adams County, Colo. After joining the district in 2008, he helped design and implement WordThink, Anythink's word-based classification system that replaced Dewey district-wide. In his current role, he leads the charge on helping the district support creativity and innovation through technology. Logan also coordinates TechFest, Anythink's annual all-staff training day geared towards emerging technologies and 21st century skills. Prior to joining Anythink, Logan worked for the Montrose Regional Library District in Montrose, Colo., and University of Washington Libraries in Seattle. Colleagues frequently refer to him as "The Man Who Killed Dewey."
