Macrina’s project is not just about bringing libraries up to speed. It’s also about leveraging their unique position as community institutions to invigorate a pallid public dialogue about the surveillance state and civil liberties. Key sections of the Patriot Act are due to expire on June 1, but there has been little public scrutiny so far of the congressional debate about extending or reforming those provisions.
Join us tomorrow, Tuesday May 26th at 7pm at the Strathcona Branch of Edmonton Public Library. Meetings last an hour. Interested information professionals, students and new members always welcome!
