Location

Dorothy H. Hoover Library, 215c MCC (113 McCaul St.)

Join in on the discussion & enjoy some food (two things not usually associated with libraries!)

Part1:  What is a library? Does it tell a story?  Does it help you tell your story? 

Join us for one or both interactive workshops focusing on strategies for de-coding and maybe even de-colonizing libraries. 

Through a hands-on exploration of the OCAD U Library space, we will see how the organization of a library’s collections tells broader stories about cultural values and, most importantly, find ways to work around these frameworks. 

Using a process of asking questions, interacting with library collections, exchanging stories, we can discuss new possibilities so that the all people using the library can find their own stories among the many.
