Peter Bromberg is the Associate Director of Public Services for Salt Lake
County Library Services, and sits on the Board of Directors for
EveryLibrary, the first library "Super Pac." An experienced speaker,
trainer, and facilitator, he has been working in libraries for nearly 25
years  and has worn many hats including those of reference, teen, legal,
environmental, and consortial librarian.

Peter was dubbed “The Transformer” by Library Journal in their 2008
Mover/Shaker issue for his work as a coach and mentor, and his role in
building a number of high impact collaborative statewide programs and
services including a regional eAudiobook consortium, statewide
“Train-the-Trainer” and “Super Library Supervisor” programs.

He has been involved with many leadership initiatives on state and national
levels, including Chairing and co-facilitating ALA’s Emerging Leaders
program, and co-designing and delivering an intensive experiential
leadership institute for the Oklahoma Library Association structured around
the principles of emotional intelligence.

As a coach, Peter is fascinated by what motivates human behavior and enjoys
helping people make more strategic, effective, enriching choices.  By his
own description, he is just a simple librarian trying to make it in this
crazy world.
