Meet our Presenter:
Peter Bromberg, Associate Director EveryLibrary
Peter has nearly 30 years of experience applying a human-centered approach to the transformation of library services, creating value and positive experiences for people and communities, while fostering healthy, equitable, and effective organizational climates. As a library advocate on local, state, and national levels, he coaches and consults with librarians, boards, and associations to develop effective messaging and build strong community and political support for library funding.
As Executive Director of the Salt Lake City Library, Peter applied an equity lens to board development, operations, and policy development, garnering a Distinguished Service Award from the American Society for Public Administrators (ASPA) for his work in eliminating inequitable barriers to service, including the elimination of all late fees in 2016. He has frequently presented on the topic of eliminating late fees, and has offered pro bono coaching and consulting with many libraries across the country to help them chart their path to implementing fine-free policies.
