If you were given the opportunity to build a library from scratch right now, what would it look like? Absent legacy infrastructure, what services would you provide and who would you hire? How would you go about programming opportunities and events for today’s library users?
Daniel Flood, Creative Manager at The Edge, is in the rare and thrilling position of building a new library space in today’s cultural environment. His work at The Edge, a five-year-old project by the State Library of Queensland, is fueled by the prospect of engaging the next generation of library users through hands-on experimentation and exciting learning opportunities.
While Daniel is in town from Australia, please join us for a talk next Thursday evening here at METRO. We look forward to hearing Daniel’s thoughts on:
- Programming and its place in the future library
- Experiential learning within an evolving library context
- Ignorance as a choice and the part the future library plays in that conversation
- The Edge and its learnings after five years of operations
We hope you will also join us for informal (read: cash bar) drinks following this event, location to be announced.
