The transformation of public libraries requires not just government funding, but also engagement and partnership of various stakeholders who could contribute to fulfilling the knowledge demands from the community. Multi-stakeholder support and partnerships can transform public libraries in various ways including substantiation of infrastructure and facilities in the library space, introduction of new services and programs as well as in the development of a responsive mechanism to fulfil emerging user demands. However, this kind of multi-stakeholder partnership requires an understanding of potential of these spaces in catering to diverse groups of users rather than just being seen as book borrowing and lending spaces or newspaper reading corners.

It also requires the librarian to work as an entrepreneur to be able to articulate the needs in a well thought out manner as well as an ability to reach out to different kind of partners for collaboration and engagement. The session would focus on understanding the potential and possibility of such multi-stakeholder partnership.
