Be Like Brando: The #Library as arena of co-creation and belonging #ChristianLauersen


Be like Brando, define and shape your learning activities in the library

Text of my keynote at the annual ChALS conference in Gothenburg, Sweden September 26 2018. The theme was learning (in a brought sense).

This conference is about learning so I thought it would be relevant to start asking the question, ”Why is learning important, why do we even care about learning”.

[a number of responses came from the audience: learning liberates, learning makes us grow, learning developes us]

To me learning is important because I feel my world is expanding when I learn something new. My opportunity and ability to influence and understand my surroundings, my friends, my family, my libraries, the society we serve grows with every little new thing I learn. Learning is significant to make the world a better place to be. And then it is just a whole lot of fun to learn new stuff.

So learning is great. Is the library a place for learning? I would say that is a big yes any day but not everybody thinks so…
