In the first webinar of 2020, we’ll explore a unique twist on a Civic Commons classic – the library. Often referred to as a “third space” for many people, libraries have been diversifying their offerings in recent decades, including multi-media content, tech-forward resources, language courses, social programs and “alternative” lending, such as libraries and sharing depots for tools, music, and even kitchen items. As they work to transform their offerings in a changing context, we’ll be discussing the protection of libraries as expanded spaces for learning, gathering and mobilizing.
