Library evolution Nordic Talks

    • Society & Culture

What do you think of when you hear the word library? Maybe you think of a building full of books - a place to explore other worlds and perspectives. But in the 21st century libraries have become much more than that. They mirror society and reflect the developments occurring in the surrounding world. In some libraries, you can now even borrow a so-called human book – a real human being sitting in front of you sharing their personal story. Sounds exciting, right?

In this episode, we explore the unifying power of libraries and discover why some people consider them to be the beating heart of modern communities.

This episode comes from an online Nordic Talks event organized by the Toronto International Festival of Authors in partnership with the Harbourfront Centre. The talk is part of Toronto's Harbourfront Centre "Nordic Bridges 2022" cultural exchange initiative.
