Transformers are public libraries in rural Manitoba that have transformed themselves and become more vital and responsive to their communities. Sandra Yeo, Head Librarian, Boyne Regional Library in Carman, and her staff reorganized their collection from Dewey Decimal to subject categories.  Jo-Ann Verniest, Head Librarian, Victoria Municipal Library, Holland, rearranged and modernized the look of the library and uses her retail background to market the collection. Speaking about creative programming will be Jean-Louis Guillas, Director of Parkland Regional Library, and Donna Walby Lawson, Manager of Library Services, Springfield Public Library in Dugald.  After the panel presentation there will be time for discussion and sharing of other transformational stories from the audience. This presentation has been arranged, sponsored and hosted by the Manitoba Library Trustees Association.
