Rethinking library spaces and services
Libraries are not only collections of print and digital media, but also spaces for critical engagement with information, creative and collaborative work, and preservation of community memory. The Radical Librarianship Track invites participants to go beyond the traditional understanding of the function of libraries. We will explore the ways that libraries can provide innovative services which facilitate the development of ideas and practices for strong communities. Participants will develop strategies for effectively organizing information, media resources, and library spaces to be more accessible to their communities.
This track is coordinated by Andrea Perez, Westland Public Library; Katie Dover-Taylor, Westland Public Library; Rachel Thompson, Seraphine Collective
