The Evolution of Library Space:
- From Collection to Connection
- From Book Container to Community Hub
- From Transaction to Relation
Public Libraries have gone a long way since their Carnegie years. The “last social equalizer,” a “safe space,” a “third place,” an “innovation incubator” are only some of the functions of Libraries as society moves to the 21st century. Come to Queens Library in October and learn about the exciting evolution of the Library Space throughout the years as exemplified in two of Queens Public Library’s iconic branches.
This is an intergenerational program, and no registration is required.
