Driving Change in Detroit: Libraries Innovating in Step with the Community
Meyer, Jessica; Chang, Allister; Trujillo, Kat
Childhood Education, v93 n4 p277-279 2017
Often, the conversation about Detroit features the same words used over and over again: poor, broken, abandoned, blighted. But the authors' experiences in the Motor City have shown them something completely different--a community that, in the face of overwhelming challenges, maintains a profound commitment to making Detroit a better place. This juxtaposition of resilience and adversity, coupled with the city's abiding innovative spirit, makes Detroit fertile ground for the dynamic programming that Libraries Without Borders, whose mission is to expand access to information, education, and cultural tools for vulnerable people around the world, has pioneered for over a decade.
