Contemplating the library of the future

He was recently appointed as the director of the National Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled of the Library of Congress after serving as the state librarian of Vermont for two years—the first African-American to hold that position.

As the state librarian of Vermont, Broughton served 185 locally governed public libraries and supported the state legislature. At the Library of Congress, he will oversee national library networks and work to ensure they provide library services for the blind and print disabled, a diverse population that spans children through the elderly and includes military veterans.
