Progressive Library Skillshare Pittsburgh

Progressive Library Skillshare
September 7 & 8, 2007 - Pittsburgh, PA
completely FREE and open to everyone

This free two-day event will bring together library workers, library lovers, zine enthusiasts, book artists, publishers, and community members to explore the relationship between library work and social justice. We'll connect each other with alternative information resources while discussing socially responsible, creative ways to share information in our communities. This unconference will encourage us to think critically about information: how it's produced, distributed, and consumed.
