So Much More than Books - 4:35
Brian Bannon, Chicago Public Library
Posted Dec 13, 2017
Brian Bannon will discuss the future of libraries and current CPL offerings that connect Chicago communities to technology, resources and learning at 80 locations across the city. He'll discuss the innovative co-located libraries with CHA housing, as well as other capital investments being made in partnership with the City of Chicago and Mayor Rahm Emanuel. He'll discuss how we're able to offer additional job finding and technology resources thanks to a gift from Comcast to Chicago Public Library Foundation, which will support YOUmedia, Maker Lab and Cybernavigator programs at Woodson, Whitney Young and Altgeld branches.
