Libraries are used to sharing library stuff: books, programs, spaces, tech, and so on. Libraries also do outreach that connects their communities to the library. In this program we’ll explore something different: libraries improving access to the non-library stuff around us; local cultural venues, neighborhood public spaces, community goings-on, nature, and more. Librarians, often enabled by new technologies, are acting as agents and brokers on behalf of the public to the riches of our cities and towns. We’ll discuss how these projects enhance the role of library membership and why they are a strategic fit for libraries.
