With support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and in partnership with Chicago Public Library, this full-day introductory workshop draws upon the toolkit developed by IDEO, an award-winning, human-centered global design firm, to help libraries use design thinking to better understand and service library patrons. The program will take a step-by-step approach to guide you through the process of understanding design thinking, so you can put it into practice at your library.
