Thinking Outside: Libraries and Placemaking in Pandemic Times

Thinking Outside: Libraries and Placemaking in Pandemic Times

https://www.webjunction.org/news/webjunction/thinking-outside.html

“As libraries begin to consider offering services and programming in new or reimagined ways, some are looking at how to use outdoor spaces as a way to connect and engage with their communities. From parking lots to baseball diamonds, there are public spaces in every community that can provide ways for people come together, while remaining safely distanced.

Project for Public Spaces, an organization dedicated to helping people create and sustain public spaces that build strong communities, has been exploring ways that placemaking can help bring people together in outdoor spaces for many years, and the principles are especially important to libraries now, as we look for ways to move programming and services outside our traditional library spaces.”
