Library Innovation Day 2017

You may not be aware that you are an innovator, but you are — as are many of your colleagues.

There’s no point reinventing the wheel!  Learn how you can adopt or adapt a process, technology, or app. The Manitoba Library Consortium welcomes you to come and hear members of our community share how their innovation stands out!

The purpose of Library Innovation Day is to showcase innovative applications, services, tricks and tips being used by library staff in Manitoba in order to increase their productivity or add value to their service for their customers, users, and patrons.


Innovators are known for recognizing opportunities – for seeing that there must be a better way to accomplish a task to bring about an important result.  Our Innovation Day Innovators will get on their soapbox to share how their innovation solved a problem or impacted the way in which they work.
