Part of the Carnegie Library of Beaver Falls’ Comprehensive Plan for Vision Transformation is the development of the Knowledge Exchange Room.  Video Conferencing is part of the 21st century library experience and one piece of technology that will be made available for knowledge sharing.  Additional renovations will include equipment for creating, storing and sharing content.  Not only will this be used by the library for inclusion in programming, the library intends to make the resources available for businesses, social agencies, local organizations and government agencies.  The opportunities are endless in the services the Carnegie Free Library of Beaver Falls will be able to provide.  Board President Ron Main is the developmental catalyst of the Knowledge Exchange Room comments, “having the opportunity to work with the Northland Public Library team is exactly how we envision new services from the library; bringing teachers and learners together, regardless of distance, to engage in meaningful conversations that create new knowledge and deepen the learning experience. The Carnegie Free Library of Beaver Falls Knowledge Exchange Room is the destination and inspiration for our library’s vision, which is To Inspire and Empower Lifelong Learning and the Exchange of Knowledge.”
