"Libraries believe that people should be free to explore ideas without anyone watching." – Sari Feldman

Sari Feldman, Executive Director of the Cuyahoga County Public Library and newly-elected President of the American Library Association, discusses the ever increasing community relevance of libraries in the digital age. Specifically, she cites the advent of the sharing economy and big data as the two largest trends effecting libraries, as they deal with new issues of individual privacy and the increased usage of e-books.
