Jamie LaRue of  Douglas County Libraries presents: That Changes Everything!

Jamie LaRue

Two trends – the rise of both ebook and self-publishing – will profoundly affect the future of both publishing and of libraries. The historic partnership between CIPA and the Douglas County Libraries is one strategy to connect writers and readers. What other steps will or should libraries take in this brave new world? And how can you position yourself as a publisher to survive and thrive? Are you ready?

Jamie LaRue has been the director of the Douglas County Libraries, headquartered in Castle Rock, CO since 1990. He is the author of The New Inquisition: Understanding and Managing Intellectual Freedom Challenges, and has written a weekly newspaper column for over 23 years. He was the Colorado Librarian of the Year in 1998, the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce’s 2003 Business Person of the Year, and in 2007 won the Julie J. Boucher Award for Intellectual Freedom.
