News & Announcements

San Antonio Public Library Staff Join Distinguished List of Library Leaders as Presenters at Re-think It Library Conference in Austin

Staff to share San Antonio Public Library innovations with national audience

Conference breakout sessions will be divided into five categories: Transforming Physical Library Spaces and Places; Developing a Forward-Thinking Organizational Culture; Innovative Services, Programs, or Technologies; Reflecting Community Values and Needs; and Assessing and Evaluating Spaces and Services.

 

San Antonio Public Library staff will present four presentations during the conference. “I am proud that our San Antonio Public Library staff members have been asked to participate in this important conference,” said Ramiro Salazar, Director of the San Antonio Public Library. “They are playing an important and influential role in the future of libraries and library service. Our participation is a testament to the forward-thinking and innovative work of the entire library staff.”

 

Kathy Donellan, Assistant Director for Support Services, and Mark Loiselle, Design and Development Assistant, will present “Strategic Planning for Library Building Improvements to Achieve Excellent.” This presentation will focus on a process for achieving excellence in building performance and sustainability, as well as economic planning to better utilize available funding sources. They will discuss tips and tools for building partnerships and leveraging public and private funds to assist in project development. 

 

Jennifer Velasquez, Teen Services Coordinator for the San Antonio Public Library and author of "Real-World Teen Services" will present on the Nordic Four-Space Model for teen spaces. This model suggests the creation of four spaces- the learning space, the inspiration space, the meeting space, and the performance space- to encourage experience, involvement, empowerment, and innovation. Velasquez proposes this model as a framework for rethinking the space libraries provide for teen users (young adults aged 13 to 18).

 

Cheryl Sheehan, Public Services Administrator for the San Antonio Public Library will present “Big Service in a Small Space”, detailing San Antonio Public Library’s unique partnership with the YMCA of greater San Antonio and the development of the award-winning Potranco Branch Library and Mays Family YMCA facility.

 

Finally, Caitlin Cowart, Community and Public Relations Manager and David Cooksey, Performance & Innovation Manager, will present on the San Antonio Public Library system’s innovative use of space and resources to better serve the community. Their presentation will focus on the multiple roles that libraries play in a community, from makerspace to music studio, digital meeting room to polling site.
