Episode 9

Episode 9 is about privatizing libraries

We conclude our series “Libraries at Work” by exploring the library’s role in society. The trend to privatize public libraries is growing but when it happens, communities often fight back. We’ll talk to Stephen Klein and Jackie Griffin, two librarians who are fighting to keep their counties from outsourcing their public libraries.
