Forward Thinking Speaker Series


The Forward Thinking Speaker Series reflects EPL’s rich history of taking risks, trying new things, and redefining the modern library. EPL invites thought-leaders from a variety of industries speaking on a variety of topics to share their insights, ideas, experiences, and viewpoints, with the goal of helping us purposefully build better organizations, neighborhoods, and communities.
