Aedile Works

About myself

→ noun (hist.) either of a pair of Roman magistrates who administered public works, maintenance of roads, public games, the grain supply, etc.

Aedile Works is the work of Mita Williams who is not actually an aedile but a librarian who writes and speaks about civics, tech, feminism, and climate change.

I’ve been blogging since 1999 and still update Librarian of Things regularly. That being said, I think my best work is a weekly newsletter called University of Winds that is written and published every Saturday morning.

My previous blogs Rain Barrel, New Jack Almanac, New Jack Librarian, 4-0-Wonderland, and A City To Live In have been retired and The Magnetic North, and The city is here for you to use are still in stasis. I also used to write occasionally on Medium.
