The exchange of information and knowledge within communities of learners is a ripe area for exploration. How people learn, what motivates them, and how we can assess learning opportunities are viable questions for information professionals. As the 20th century of “Reading, Writing and Arithmetic” gives way to a New Culture of Learning, the opportunities to learn anywhere and everywhere are continuously being expanded. Libraries and other information organizations can serve their communities of learners in multiple ways, such as through hands on experiential learning, exposure to new types of literacies, and out of the box programming. Modern libraries have created both in-person and virtual programs for their communities, such as 3D printer workshops for children and teens, drag queen story hours, etc.
