  1. Code4Lib networking & social hour at METRO


    Come and catch up with friends and colleagues at this summer's social c4l NYC Meetup. Discuss your current projects and be inspired to start new ones.

    METRO will provide coffee and cookies--feel free to bring a snack to share. If there is interest, we can move to Gotham West Market after the event ends.

    This meetup is for everyone! From the code4lib "about us": "code4lib isn’t entirely about code or libraries. It is a volunteer-driven collective of hackers, designers, architects, curators, catalogers, artists and instigators from around the world, who largely work for and with libraries, archives and museums on technology 'stuff.'"

  2. PLSN Book Club #2


    Thank you to everyone who came to our inaugural meetup in April! On July 24th at 6:30, the Prison Abolition Book Club returns to discuss the session 2 readings (The Birth of the Penitentiary) from the Black & Pink prison abolition class syllabus (https://we.riseup.net/plsn/black-pink-prison-abolition-syllabus) at METRO.

    About PLSN's Prison Abolition Book Club
    Want to learn more about prison abolition but not sure where to start? Looking to explore the role of information in the prison industrial complex? Excited to discuss ways we can collectively offer information skills as resources to address violence caused by mass incarceration?

    Join the club (literally)! Prison Library Support Network (PLSN) is holding a book club at METRO, where we meet over snacks to discuss readings from the Black & Pink prison abolition class syllabus (https://we.riseup.net/plsn/black-pink-prison-abolition-syllabus). This is a space for anyone looking for collective support in learning about these ideas, regardless of familiarity with prison abolition. Just RSVP, and we'll see you there!
