Image by striatic via FlickrLast week, I listened to something on NPR about what the future of libraries will look like (I can’t find a link to the story anywhere – if you remember what program this was on let me know). It was pretty exciting to hear about ideas for how libraries will function in the future – think less books, more shared tools like podcast studios and meeting spaces.
I back in October, as this group organized a photo scavenger hunt as part of their research on playgrounds.
