Libraries are often the heart of any community.  They are a safe and friendly gathering place, a place to share ideas and information, and a place to gain new insight and knowledge.  So, what better place than a library to hold a TEDx event?

When Natalie Dielman first started working at Way Public Library as a Programming Specialist, planning a TEDx event was on the top of her list of things to do.  She has watched her fair share of TED talks over the years, and always felt inspired and motivated after doing so.  By bringing a TEDx event to Way Public Library, Natalie hopes that others will leave with that same sense of inspiration and motivation.

We hope that by hosting a TEDx event here at Way Public Library, we will encourage community members to share their ideas with each other, and allow them to open their minds to things they may have never considered or understood before.  Our theme for the event is “(Inter)active”, and we feel that this is truly what TEDxWayPublicLibrary will be all about.
