We have lots of conversations in my extended family about the role of the public library these days, and I happened across an interesting post from an unlikely source - the Kickstarter blog. In a post titled, Libraries are Everywhere, the author asks the following questions of four founders or employees of very non-traditional, yet public, libraries:
- What is a library? How would you define it?
- What's so important about libraries?
- What do all good libraries have in common?
- The year is 2050. What are libraries like in the future?
- What advice do you have for people that want to create a library of their own?
Nice to hear from folks outside the traditional fold.
