Dodge, Chris
American Libraries, v29 n5 p62-64 May 1998
Describes various infoshops across the United States: these centers offer alternative materials; are collaboratively run and staffed by volunteers; are typically founded/run by young people; and often serve as venues for concerts, screenings, and political discussions. Suggests libraries might take inspiration from infoshops, and serve coffee, provide a wide variety of programs, abolish fines, and set up community bulletin boards. (AEF)
