Hey hey Incubator friends– it’s March now, so spring feels like something that could actually happen (unless, you know, that real factual thing called Global Warming made February a balmy 60 degree haven, like it did in Pittsburgh).
We hope the extra light and the promise of daffodils will make calling your senators daily a little easier, and that you take heart in your libraries, where cool, creative, and inclusive things are happening. Some of our favorite examples from the past week are linked below, but if you have a story to share, please check out our Call for Submissions and send us a note!
- Book to Boogie is back! Time to shake it with “Cindy Moo.”
- How can public and school libraries work together? Here’s one example we love: Makerspace Mondays: a public & school library partnership.
- Our friend, artist VersAnnette Blackman-Bosia, shares an insightful perspective on what it means to show work as an artist of color in a library that is mostly a white space.
Around the Web
- I want to listen to this story from NPR on a loop: How NYC’s First Puerto Rican Librarian Brought Spanish To The Shelves.
