Diane Lapierre

Director, Loveland Public Library
I am a passionate believer in the possibility for public libraries to provide a place for public dialogue, a mashup of thoughts and ideas from across disciplines, perspectives, and ideologies. Talk to me about how you can create an ecosystem in your library to make this happen!
