Post 7: Conclusion

Although there are many different ways libraries can incorporate interactive and participatory media, they all have the benefit of engaging the community and exposing people to library resources that they may not have known were available.  Whether communicating with the community through exhibitions and social media or bringing people into the library with video games and 3D printers, there have never been more ways to engage in outreach and support the needs of library patrons.

As technology changes, libraries can continue to take advantage of new opportunities to stay at the center of learning, research, and entertainment.  Because libraries are increasingly becoming community hubs and collaborative workspaces, the role of interactive media is sure to continue to grow in the future.
