Designing the Future: A Design Thinking Workshop

Designing the Future: A Design Thinking Workshop

This is in-person workshop is taking place at the Hartford Public Library and is presented by Library Journal in collaboration with Hartford Public Library. 

Led by experienced design thinking facilitators from Chicago Public Library, Designing the Future is an introductory live workshop that provides the opportunity for library professionals and teams to tackle their real-life problems through a series of expert-led collaborative exercises. 

With support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and in partnership with Chicago Public Library and Aarhus Public Library, this full-day introductory workshop draws upon the toolkit developed by IDEO, an award-winning, human-centered global design firm, to help libraries use design thinking to better understand and service library patrons. The program will take a step-by-step approach to guide you through the process of understanding design thinking so you can put it into practice at your library.
