Open Library Community Celebration 2021
Last year we started the tradition of doing an Open Library Community Celebration to honor the contributions & impact of those in our community. On October 26, 2021 @ 10am Pacific we will be hosting our 2nd annual community celebration. We hope you can join us!
During this online event, you’ll hear from members of the community as we:
- Announce our latest developments and their impacts
- Raise awareness about opportunities to participate
- Show a sneak-peek into our future: 2022
EDIT: The Community Celebration happened and you may watch it here!
End of September on 2021-09-28 @ 10am PT, the Open Library community came together to brainstorm Open Library’s possible long-term directions. Anyone in the community is welcome to comment and add their notes and thoughts:
