library as interface

As part of the Leddy Library Research Series, I presented a talk entitled “Library as interface to public space and public self” on April 13th, 2012 at the Leddy Library.

“Events held within libraries animate the space of the library and situates it as a place not just where knowledge is accessed but where it can be created, understood, and shared. Community events held within libraries embody the notion that libraries are a continual community-building exercise. Librarians are positioned as perfect hosts of events as we have access to cheap, accessible, and open public space and we are mandated to serve all sectors of our communities. Libraries, by their very nature, are a gathering of people and ideas mixed together.”
