Transformational literacy: Preparing users for life’s transitions

Every day, libraries help people transform their lives. But nowhere is that role more apparent—and important—as when people move from one life stage to another. Whether the transition is from high school to college, student to worker, adult to parent or any other important life change, the need for information and preparation during these “between” states is more acute than at any other time in our users’ lives. A presentation by Dr. Mimi Ito was followed by a panel discussion on principles that all libraries can use to create an environment that encourages and facilitates lifelong learning.
