Re-defining the Public in Public Libraries, L. Freeman
In this talk Lisa Freeman will discuss the changing role of public libraries in the context of urban governance. Public libraries in Canada are increasingly being compared to public spaces for multiple and diverse publics. In her work, Lisa asks how the publicness of the library is performed in the context of austerity measures and municipal governance. This research raises important questions about the role of citizen boards in governing changing public spaces in our cities.
