Helping Open the Kaohsiung Central Library in Taiwan

Speaking at a conference entitled, "Flipped Libraries: International Forum on New Paradigm in Space and Services of Public Libraries," in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Because Tulsa, Okla. is a sister city to  Kaohsiung, I, along with library directors from other sister cities, were invited to help them open their new Central Library. The system has over 60 branches but did not have a Central Library previously. 

Library directors from Amsterdam, Bangkok, Brisbane, San Antonio, and Seoul also shared their knowledge on the latest in library planning. Additional speakers came from the National Library of Taiwan. Shaffer is pictured in front of the new Kaohsiung Central Library on the home page of this website. Here he is speaking to conference attendees.
