How can the Britannia Renewal project incorporate current trends in library service while also understanding how different early environments and experiences contribute to inequalities in children’s development?
“Libraries still continue to provide books and materials as we always
have, but it is by bringing the community together and facilitate the
sharing of knowledge and ideas and perspectives that we lift our
community up individually and collectively. When that happens,
we’ve truly succeeded as a library.” Asa Kachan
