About Maxine Bleiweis:
During her 17 years as Executive Director of the Westport Library, Maxine Bleiweis was a leader in implementing new technologies as they evolved, setting the trend to introduce 3D printing and robots. She was among the first to dedicate a “MakerSpace” for hands-on innovation in the public library. While serving as the executive director of the pubic library in Newington in the1990’s, Bleiweis wrote the book: “Helping Business: The Library’s Role in Community Economic Development”. Topics in her popular public speaking engagements included strategies to improve customer service and ways to encourage innovative thinking, along with community economic development.
Today Bleiweis is consulting with libraries, vendors and architects, sharing innovative ideas to advance their practices.
