We Are All Welcome in Libraries – A Conversation with Eric Klinenberg

“Sociologist Eric Klinenberg’s Palaces for The People: How Social Infrastructure Can Help Fight Inequality, Polarization, and the Decline of Civic Life (2018) persuasively and forcefully argues that the strength of
communities is in direct proportion to the strength of their institutions, like public libraries, that promote social connection among its members. Klinenberg combines academic research with journalistic reporting, having spent over a year interviewing those on the front lines of shared social spaces: library employees, architects, religious leaders, and educators.”
